“Armenia in World History, the World in Armenian History,” Symposium

Saturday, October 15, 2011

1636 International Institute/SSWB, 1080 S. University

History as a discipline emerged in modern times as the story of the nation, and nowhere in historiography is this more evident than in the narratives of dispersed peoples, most particularly those of Armenians and Jews. Often these histories are isolated from the larger context of the empires and transnational movements that indelibly shaped their characters.
In order to recover what has been lost in the Armenian history, the symposium aims to broaden our perspective to investigate how Armenians were engaged both in contests over imperial impositions and in adaptations to empire as well as participated in and were influenced by global transformations.
