Armenian Genocide Denial

The Armenian Genocide Denial Project at the NYU Global Institute for Advanced Study has brought together scholars from across disciplines for a series of discussions and workshops that will culminate in an edited volume on the denial of the Armenian genocide.

After holding several brainstorming sessions in Spring 2023, the Project has invited 15 scholars to contribute chapters to the volume from historical, philosophical, sociological, and public policy perspectives.

In Fall 2023, a virtual workshop was convened to discuss chapter abstracts submitted by the contributors. An in-person workshop to review and discuss draft chapters will be held in 2024. The expected date of publication for the volume is Spring 2026.

‘Facts Are Stubborn Things’: How Denial Turns Facts Into Opinions and Erodes Truth, a public event co-sponsored with the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) was hosted on April 24, 2023.

Coverage of the event in The Armenian Weekly is available here: Marc Mamigonian’s presentation at NYU addresses genocide denial and the erosion of truth.
