Armenian Genocide Denial

The Armenian Genocide Denial project will support and produce research on the history and dynamics of Armenian genocide denial, its geopolitical and economic implications, and the struggle against it both within and outside Turkey. The project will encourage comparative, multidisciplinary perspectives on the study of denial, the production of “alternative facts,” and the manufacturing of controversy by “merchants of doubt.” The academic disciplines associated with the project’s research will primarily be History, Political Science, and Philosophy.

Co-Principal Investigators: Paul Boghossian (Chair, NYU Philosophy; Director, NYU Global Institute for Advanced Study); Khatchig Mouradian (Lecturer in Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies, Columbia University)
