Lecture by U?ur Ümit Üngör-

Race and Space: The Armenian Genocide in the Context of Population and Territory

A Lecture by
U?ur Ümit Üngör
Assistant Professor, Institute for War and Genocide Studies, Amsterdam

The eastern provinces of the Ottoman Empire used to be a multi-ethnic region where Armenians, Kurds, Syriacs, Turks, and Arabs lived together in the same villages and cities. From 1913 to 1950, successive Turkish regimes subjected this region to a thorough policy of ethnic homogenization.

Based on a decade of research on a range of unexamined records, Üngör demonstrates that the Armenian Genocide was part and parcel of this wider process. He will offer insights into the economic ramifications of the genocide and describe how the plunder was organized on the ground. He will conclude that this violent process not only destroyed historical regions and emptied multicultural cities, but also cleared the way for the modern Turkish nation state.

Dr. U?ur Ümit Üngör is Assistant Professor at the Department of History of Utrecht Uni-versity and the Institute for War and Genocide Studies in Amsterdam. He specializes in genocide, mass violence, and ethnic conflict.
His recent publications include Confiscation and Destruction: The Young Turk Seizure of Armenian Property (Continuum, 2011), and The Making of Modern Turkey: Nation and State in Eastern Anatolia, 1913-1950 (Oxford University Press, 2011).

Dr. Üngör's book The Making of Modern Turkey: Nation and State in Eastern Anatolia, 1913-1950, newly-published in paperback, will be available for purchase and signing the night of the lecture.

The NAASR Bookstore will open at 7:00 p.m.
