Dr. Alan Whitehorn (file photo)

In October at Yerevan, Armenia, Alan Whitehorn, poet and Royal Military College of Canada emeritus professor of political science, was named by the founders of the humanitarian-award Aurora Prize as an international Goodwill Ambassador. In that same month, the Writers’ Union of Armenia announced that professor Whitehorn was named an honorary member of their professional association and awarded him the Narekatsi gold medal for his academic and literary writings on genocide. The Armenian Genocide Museum Institute also invited him to give two major lectures: “A Brief Global History of Genocide and Human Rights” and “Remembering and Understanding Genocide Through Literature and the Arts: A Case Study of the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust”. The latter lecture was reprised at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs School of Diplomacy.

Please see here for the text of Dr. Whitehorn’s speech “A Brief Global History of Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity and Human Rights”
