In memory of Arsene B. Haroutunian.
Join Chhange for our annual commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, featuring Dr. Henry Theriault. Since 2007, he has chaired the Armenian Genocide Reparations Study Group and is lead author of its March 2015 final report, Resolution with Justice. The descendant of Armenian Genocide Survivors, Dr. Theriault has worked for decades to achieve official recognition of the Armenian Genocide and justice for its victims and their families. He will join Chhange’s Executive Director Dr. Sara Brown for a conversation about this work.
Dr. Theriault is a Professor in the Philosophy Department at Worcester State University. He earned his B.A. in English from Princeton University and his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts, with specializations in social and political as well as continental philosophy. Theriault’s expertise is in genocide and human rights studies, and his research focuses on reparations, victim-perpetrator relations, genocide denial, genocide prevention, and mass violence against women and girls. He is founding co-editor of the peer-reviewed Genocide Studies International and is the past president of the International Association of Genocide Scholars.
