This project, supported by the Arsham and Charlotte Ohanessian Chair, addresses conflicts over the denial versus acknowledgment of the Armenian genocide. It asks how the public understanding of the genocide changes in everyday interactions, the intervention of knowledge entrepreneurs, through public rituals and in the context of legislative and legal disputes. Fellowships at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) in South Africa and the Paris Institute for Advanced Study (academic year 2018-19) provided opportunities to answer these questions in a book manuscript. The book is forthcoming in 2021, under the title Knowing about Genocide: Armenian Suffering and Epistemic Struggles, with the University of California Press.
