"he role of the mass media in Genocide is multifaceted, with respect to the disclosure and flow of information. In fact, the mass media provides both explanations and interpretations of events to the public in potentially controversial ways. From this perspective, the Armenian Genocide, the first of its kind in the modern era, continues to raise many questions. What impact did the mass media have on related events as they occurred? Similarly, what direct and indirect impact did media coverage have on the international public space? What importance should be attributed to mass media iconography in the representation of mass violence? How was the media discourse expressed semantically? How does that lead to conflicts over the ways in which historical events are commemorated and remembered? On the eve of the commemoration of the centenary of the Armenian Genocide, Mass Media and the Genocide of the Armenians investigates questions of responsibility, denial, victimisation and marginalisation through an analysis of the media representations of the event in different national contexts."
