A Talk by Stephen Kurkjian Investigative Reporter, Boston GlobeMember, NAASR Board of Directors The brutal murder of Armenian newspaper editor Hrant Dink in Istanbul on January 19 has drawn an unprecedented response from around the world, especially in his home city of Istanbul where tens of thousands of people filled the streets for his funeral in what is being called Turkey’s largest-ever peaceful demonstration. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Kurkjian flew to Istanbul to witness the historic events taking place before and after the funeral. He will give his first-hand account of the sights, sounds, and sentiments in Turkey. Hrant Dink was perhaps the most visible member of Turkey’s remaining Armenian community. As the editor of Agos newspaper and contributor to other papers, his writings and public comments, particularly on the need for Turkey to confront its history, including the Armenian Genocide, had led to his prosecution under Article 301 of the Turkish penal code for “insulting Turkishness.” His slaying appears to have shocked Turkish society to an unexpected extent. Kurkjian’s eyewitness report will provide an opportunity for all who followed these events from a distance to gain a unique understanding of their potential significance and repercussions. In addition to Kurkjian’s talk, NAASR Director of Programs and Publications Marc A. Mamigonian will give an overview of the press coverage of the Hrant Dink murder and funeral in an attempt to begin to understand how various entities in Turkey and the U.S. have begun to portray the events and the possible reasons for these assorted interpretations.
