The Contemporary Construction of Armenian Identity Graduate Student Workshop

The map of the Armenian world is currently being physically and symbolically redrawn. The emergence of the post-Soviet Republic, disruption of the Middle East diaspora, growth of new nodes in Russia and the US, the Armenian Genocide centennial, etc. foreground transition and discontinuity. This workshop provides a forum for graduate students to present in-progress research on aspects of this complex, multilayered process and encourage open-ended discussion of its ramifications.
