The Sara Corning Centre for Genocide Education is proud to announce that it will be co-sponsoring an academic conference titled Genocide: Prevention to Justice, which is being held on the occasion of the centennial of the Armenian Genocide.

The conference, organized by the Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee of Canada and hosted by the Armenian Students’ Associations of the University of Toronto’s St. George and Scarborough campuses, will take place on 20 March 2015 in U of T’s Northrop Fye Building. It is co-sponsored by the Osgoode International Law Society, Hillel of Toronto, STAND, the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac Student Union and the Corning Centre. The conference is part of a series of lectures on the Armenian Genocide taking place in various universities across Canada between March 20 and 22.

The speakers will be Dr. Fatma Müge Göçek, professor of sociology and women’s studies at the University of Michigan, Dr. Jermaine McCalpin, associate director of the Centre for Caribbean Thought and lecturer of transitional justice in the department of government at the University of the West Indies, and Dr. Henry Theriault, professor of philosophy and co-editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed journal Genocide Studies International.
