Imagining and Seeing: Voices of the Armenian Diaspora
Monday, April 25, 2022
Time and Venue TBD

This event is open to the campus community for in-person, socially distanced attendance.

In observance of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, this special event will feature Aram Mrjoian, the editor of Imagining and Seeing: Voices of the Armenian Diaspora, and contributors to the anthology. Imagining and Seeing, forthcoming with University of Texas Press in Fall 2022, is a collection of personal essays written by contemporary diasporan Armenian writers. Exploring displacement, assimilation, inheritance, and broader definitions of home, these writers reflect on the complications of Armenian ethnic identity today. With a particular focus on queer, multiracial, and multiethnic writers, Imagining and Seeing highlights Armenian voices that have been historically silenced or erased inside and outside of their communities.
