Lisa Misakian and Gregory Jundanian share their recent work to document the vibrant Armenian-American community of Whitinsville, which in many ways has much in common with other North American communities where Armenians found and redefined themselves in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The lessons Dr. Pamela Steiner has taken about what might be needed to achieve something positive among Armenians, Turks and Azerbaijanis is pulled together in her recent interdisciplinary book, Collective Trauma and the Armenian Genocide: Armenian, Turkish and Azerbaijani Relations Since 1839.
In this illustrated talk, Sylvie L. Merian, Ph.D., will explain the reasons for the late usage in Armenian artistic traditions of Resurrection iconography in which Christ is shown emerging from the tomb, demonstrate what inspired the artists, and show how this iconography became common in numerous other artistic media for centuries
In this talk, Dr. Carel Bertram discusses how travelers came to experience these two landscapes (hostland/diasporic home and homeland) not merely together, but as mirrors, or as parallel or overlapping maps. She uses their conversations and their memories of homeland-related recipes and music to show how, during their travels, this sensibility was activated and nurtured in ways that impacted their understanding and experiences of homeland in powerful ways.
