BELMONT, APRIL 4, ARMENPRESS: On Thurs., April 26, historian Ugur
Unit Ungor will give a lecture entitled “Race and Space: The Armenian
Genocide in the Context of Population and Territory,'” at 8 p.m. at
the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR)
Center on 395 Concord Ave. in Belmont, reports Armenpress citing The
Armenian Weekly.

Based on a decade of research on a range of unexamined records, Ungor
demonstrates that the Armenian Genocide was part and parcel of this
wider process. He will offer insights into the economic ramifications
of the genocide and describe how the plunder was organized on the
ground. He will conclude that this violent process not only destroyed
historical regions and emptied multicultural cities, but also cleared
the way for the modern Turkish nation state.

Ungor is an assistant professor at the department of history of
Utrecht University and the Institute for War and Genocide Studies
in Amsterdam. He specializes in genocide, mass violence, and ethnic
conflict. His recent publications include Confiscation and Destruction:
The Young Turk Seizure of Armenian Property (Continuum, 2011) and
The Making of Modern Turkey: Nation and State in Eastern Anatolia,
1913-1950 (Oxford University Press, 2011).
