CAS Lecture | Remnants: Embodied Archives of the Armenian Genocide
In Remnants, tattooed and scar-bearing bodies reveal a larger history, as the lived trauma of genocide is understood through bodies, skin, and—in what remains of those lives a century afterward—bones. Gathering individual memories and archival fragments of women survivors, Elyse Semerdjian offers a feminist interpretation of the Armenian Genocide, and issues a call to break open the archival record in order to embrace affect and memory.
About the Speaker: Elyse Semerdjian is the Robert Aram and Marianne Kaloosdian and Stephen and Marian Mugar Chair of Armenian Genocide Studies at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University.
