Historian Keith D. Watenpaugh to Discuss New Book ‘Bread from Stones’






BELMONT, Mass.—Historian Keith David Watenpaugh will present a talk in connection with his most recent book, Bread from Stones: The Middle East and the Making of Modern Humanitarianism, on Thurs., Jan. 28, at 7:30 p.m., at the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) Center, 395 Concord Ave., Belmont. The lecture will be co-sponsored by NAASR and the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University.

Bread from Stones (University of California Press, 2015) breaks new ground in analyzing the theory and practice of modern humanitarianism. Genocide and mass violence, human trafficking, and the forced displacement of millions in the early 20th century Eastern Mediterranean form the background for this exploration of humanitarianism’s role in the history of human rights.

Centering the international response to the genocide of the Ottoman Armenians in the history of humanitarianism and human rights, Watenpaugh explores how organizations like Near East Relief and the rescue of a generation of trafficked Armenian children helped lay the foundations of the Diasporan Armenian community.

Keith David Watenpaugh is a historian and Associate Professor of Modern Islam, Human Rights, and Peace who teaches in the Religious Studies Program at UC-Davis. He is the author of Being Modern in the Middle East and has written articles for the American Historical Review, the International Journal of Middle East Studies, Social History, and Middle East Report.

Copies of Bread from Stones will be available the night of the lecture. For more information about Watenpaugh’s talk, contact NAASR by calling (617) 489-1610 or e-mailing hq@naasr.org.
