Sept. 17-18-19, 2016 - Yerevan, Armenia - This international conference is organised by Women in War (Paris) in partnership with the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography and AGBU in Yerevan. It will bring together multidisciplinary scholars, activists and professionals working on different aspects of historical and contemporary genocide. The conference shall focus on the gendered nature of personal, political and social consequences of genocide and explore the commonalities experienced by generations growing up the shadow of genocide.

The key notions to be explored here are trauma, memory and commemoration, reinvention of tradition, post conflict nationalism and the instrumentalization of genocide, all seen through a gendered lens.

An essential contemporary dimension will be added as we shall reflect on how genocide is treated in international law. Feminists thinkers and activists, historians, sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, lawyers shall bring together their experiences and research: the intersection of their work will bring a unique dimension to this conference.

This conference is sponsored by the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah.
