The historiographic perversion by Marc Nichanian( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genocide is a matter of law. It is also a matter of history. Engaging some of the most disturbing responses to the Armenian genocide, Marc Nichanian reveals the complex role played by law and history in making this and other genocides endure as contentious events." "Nichanian's book argues that both law and history fail to contend with the very nature of events for which there is no archive (no documents, no witnesses). Both history and law fail to address the modern reality that events can be - and are now being - perpetrated that depend upon the destruction of the archive, turning monstrous deeds into nonevents. Genocide, this book makes us see, is in one sense the destruction of the archive. It relies on the historiographic perversion."--Jacket
Mourning philology : art and religion at the margins of the Ottoman Empire by Marc Nichanian( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and French and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Mourning Philology' proposes a history of the 19th century national imagination as a reaction to the two main philological inventions of that century: 'mythological religion' and the 'native'. This history is illustrated with the case of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. The book offers an account of the successive stages (archeological, self-ethnographic, and aesthetical) of the implementation of orientalist philology, through which the nation came to existence. It is also part of a general reflection on the nature of the Catastrophe and the way it destroys the possibility of mourning

Other important essays have been added in order to echo recent readings of Charents in the United States

The national revolution by Marc Nichanian( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writers of Disaster" is an ambitious undertaking by one of the foremost authorities on modern Armenian literature. Marc Nichanian, holder of the Armenian studies chair at Columbia University in New York, takes a fresh and uncompromising look at twentieth-century Armenian history and literature. The focus of this first volume is the historical phenomenon of the Armenian national revolution--the movement of national uprising among Armenians at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century--and its literary reception in Soviet Armenia. The volume consists of essays on four major twentieth-century Armenian authors: Yeghishé Charents, Gurgen Mahari, Zabel Esayan, and Vahan Totovents. All four authors lived through the national revolution. For all four of them, "the national idea was a perverted and murderous one." Ironically, however, all four were condemned to death or exile precisely for nationalism, victims of Stalin's purges. Nichanian addresses a burning question that historians and diarists have avoided for the better part of a century: "How are we to understand the link between this movement of national liberation and the extermination of the Ottoman Armenians during World War I?" To answer this question, Nichanian turns to literature: "Do writers and poets have more to say about the national revolution and its relatedness to the Catastrophe than, say, the actors themselves or the historians, or, again, the political interpreters of the events?" Nichanian writes in his preface. "Yes, they have, but not because they are able to see the historical circumstances with more insight, or because their interpretations are more accurate. They have more to say because of the power of literature, because literature is primarily, although paradoxically, linked to the work of mourning, and is able to explore the intricacies of mourning in its possibility and, more often, its impossibility." The book features translations of long excerpts from Charents's "Requiem Æternam in Memory of Komitas" and "The Nayirian Dauphin"; Mahari's "Burning Gardens"; Esayan's "In the Ruins"; and Totovents's "New York." These literary translations, beautifully executed by G.M. Goshgarian and Ishkhan Jinbashian, are required reading for everyone with an interest in Armenian culture. That includes readers of Armenian, since the translations include passages that censors excluded from published versions of these works in Soviet Armenia.--
