Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at 12pm Noon EDT/ 5pm BST
On Zoom and NAASR's YouTube channel Armenian Studies.

Join Nadia Owusu and Laure Astourian for a conversation on the reverberations of history in Owusu's widely praised memoir Aftershocks (2021). They will discuss Owusu's choice to weave family histories -- the multi-generational effects of the colonization of Ghana and the Armenian Genocide -- into her personal narrative. Learn about Owusu's research process, the importance of historical reckoning, and the parallels between seemingly disparate histories.
