What Happened and Why? Denial of State Violence


Fatma Müge Göçek, Professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan, was the guest of the USC Institute of Armenian Studies at a lunch-time conversation at the Ground Zero Coffeehouse on campus.

Dr. Göçek spoke about the centuries of collective violence against the Armenians, beginning in the Ottoman period and continuing through the republican period, until today. USC Professor of Religious Studies, Dr. Donald Miller, who is also Executive Director of USC’s Center for Religion and Civic Culture, guided the discussion.
