This workshop will initiate a conversation on Gender and Sexuality in the field of Armenian Studies. Graduate students working on gender and sexuality as objects of analysis in Armenian Studies will discuss both the challenges and the opportunities this turn in the field awards. Drawing on the rich and diverse body of literature produced in the fields of gender and sexuality, students working in history, literature, cultural studies, fine arts, ethnography, sociology and anthropology will discuss the methodologies and strategies that can be productively deployed to give meaning to Armenian landscapes and contribute to critical studies and the historiography of gender and sexuality.
