2017 (English)In: Let them not return: Sayfo: the genocide of the Assyrian, Syriac, and Chaldean Christians in the Ottoman Empire / [ed] David Gaunt, Naures Atto, Soner Onder Barthoma, New York: Berghahn Books, 2017, 233-253 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The principal goal of this chapter is to understand how the geno-cide issue has been dealt with in the political discussions held in two different national traditions: France and Sweden. The idea is to com-pare two national narratives on the genocide. I shall adopt a discursive methodology (Thornborrow and Coates 2005: 6), analysing how repre-sentatives in both countries put this issue on the political agenda. Who killed whom? Who is the aggressor and who the victim? What categories do these political debates produce in these historical events? What are the main terms used in both national political debates? The controversy gives an unparalleled opportunity to highlight a historical question. The material is composed of legislative texts that illustrate the state of the political debates on this question. Both countries experienced a wave of immigration due to the events of 1915. The analysis of parliamentary texts is all the more important as it reveals the construction of new categories to qualify what happened.
