Marc Nichanian

France, 1946

Marc Nichanian is Professor of Armenian Language and Culture at Columbia University. After studying at the University of Strasbourg and the École Nationale des Langues Orientales Vivantes, he began investigating the Turkish mass murder of the Armenians and writing down the reports of survivors and eyewitnesses. This led to his publication in 1998 of a bibliography of Hagop Oshagan and, in 2002, of Writers of Disaster: Armenian Literature in the Twentieth Century. He also wrote Ages et usages de la langue arménienne (1989) and La Perversion historiographique (2006).
