The Anthropology Graduate Student Organization presents a talk by Professor Elyse Semerdjian on her new book “Remnants: Embodied Archives of the Armenian Genocide.”

In “Remnants,” tattooed and scar-bearing bodies reveal a larger history, as the lived trauma of genocide is understood through bodies, skin, and—in what remains of those lives a century afterword—bones. Gathering individual memories and archival fragments of women survivors, Elyse Semerdjian offers a feminist interpretation of the Armenian Genocide, and issues a call to break open the archival record in order to embrace affect and memory.
