In the frame of the recently published volume Women Mobilizing Memory (Columbia University
Press, 2019), editors and contributors will talk about their contribution to the book in
the Armenian/Turkish context. Women Mobilizing Memory, a transnational exploration of the
intersection of feminism, history, and memory, shows how the recollection of violent
histories can generate possibilities for progressive futures. Questioning the politics of
memory-making in relation to experiences of vulnerability and violence, this wide-ranging
collection asks: How can memories of violence and its afterlives be mobilized for
change? What strategies can disrupt and counter public forgetting? What role do the
arts play in addressing the erasure of past violence from current memory and in creating
new visions for future generations?
