AFTER GENOCIDE: FROM TRAUMA TO REBIRTH: A GENDERED PERSPECTIVE

  |   Yerevan   |   Event Details

AFTER GENOCIDE: FROM TRAUMA TO REBIRTH: A GENDERED PERSPECTIVE
17-18 September-19th 2016
organised by Women in War (Paris)
in partnership with the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography in Yerevan and AGBU (Armenian General Benevolent Union)

Sponsored by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie
and the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah (Paris)
DVV International
Kvinna till kvinna (Sweden)
Academic Swiss Caucasus Network (ASCN):
Université Française en Arménie (UFAR)
under the auspices of the MFA

This unique conference brings together international researchers and activists united by their commitment to documenting the gender dimension in past and present genocides. The study of the particular experiences of women in historical genocides such as the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and the Holocaust have only recently emerged, and even scarcer are considerations of the way these events have affected the descendants of such events, be it on the side of victims or that of perpetrators.
For three intense days at AGBU we shall hear, in Armenian, English and French, historians, sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, lawyers, artists writers and activists who bring together their experiences and research: the intersection of their work will bring a unique dimension to this conference.
Recognized massacres with a genocidal purpose and mass expropriations generating exile from a gendered perspective will form the starting point of this conference. These will include the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, Nanking, the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda, mass killings in D.R. Congo, Cambodia, Central America, the Middle-East. At the core of these explorations, an attempt to build bridges between comparable experiences.
Questions on ongoing genocide will also be asked, including legally sanctioned reparations. We shall consider the fate of Yazidis, that of Christians in the Middle-East, the long-term consequences of chemical warfare (as in Vietnam), potentially genocidal policies (as in Turkey regarding the Kurdish population), the plight of widows, the possibilities of reconciliation in preventing the recurrence of genocide.
After the commemorations of the centenary of the Genocide, it seemed very important to examine what the next generations inherit, transmit and build. For us all, for our descendants in Armenia, as well as those in countries who have experienced genocide, this international conference will provide novel and challenging approaches
Under the aegis of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, in partnership with the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography in Yerevan and AGBU and the help of generous and kind sponsors in Yerevan, in particular DVV international as well as the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah in France, ASCN in Switzerland, Kvinna till Kvinna in Sweden and UFAR this conference is organized by the French NGO ‘Women in War’ which holds annual conferences in emblematic zones: after Sarajevo and Beirut, this one in Yerevan is its most ambitious and challenging event.

The entire conference will be filmed, available in streaming and thereafter visible on Women in War’s You-Tube Channel and website. Papers will be published in Armenian and English.
As with all events organized by Women in War, access to the conference is free, but priority is given to those who register in advance with AGBU
