With Peter Balakian, Maureen Freely, Nancy Kricorian, Robert Jay Lifton, Ronald G. Suny, and Ragip Zarakoglu. This year, the world commemorates the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, which counted many noted writers and cultural leaders among the dead. A panel discusses this tragedy–a glimpse into the darkest regions of the human soul–and its significance as a “dark paradigm” for later attempts by governments to silence writers and cultural leaders.
