Antonia Arslan and Siobhan Nash Marshall, in conversation with each other, will present and discuss new perspectives on the denial of the Armenian Genocide, a devastating example of what we now call “a post-truth” phenomenon. Their focus will be on the relevance of this poignant example to today’s seeming tidal wave of “historical engineering.”
Professor Antonia Arslan (Università di Padova) is the acclaimed author of international best-seller Skylark Farm (La masseria delle allodole) which was made into a stunning film, The Lark Farm, directed by the Taviani brothers. Professor Siobhan Nash Marshall (Mary T Clark Chair of Christian Philosophy at Manhattanville College, New York City), is the author of The Sins of the Fathers: Turkish Denialism and the Armenian Genocide.
The joint lecture will be followed by a reception with light refreshments. Books by both authors will be available for purchase.
