Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Cultural Studies - Empiric Cultural Studies, grade: 8,5, Maastricht University (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences), language: English, abstract: This year marks the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, however the events of 1915 still have a great impact on the relations between Turkey and Armenia.
