13 02 2007 - University of California, Los Angeles
An Illustrated Lecture by
Dr. Richard G. Hovannisian
AEF Professor of Modern Armenian History
University of California, Los Angeles
The landscape of Historic Western Armenia is ever changing. The mystical names of the villages, towns, and provinces of a now-vanished generation remain deeply imbedded in the minds and hearts of many descendants. But how similar are the imagined homeland and the existing landscape?
After many years of hesitation, Dr. Richard Hovannisian set out on a quest to reconcile the “imagined” with the “real.” His travels took him through a part of the historic provinces from Trebizond on the Black Sea to Baiburt, Erzerum, Kemakh, Agn, Kharpert, Dersim, Palu, Mush, Bitlis, and Van. He will present his impressions in an illustrated presentation in this special event for the Greater Boston audience.
Dr. Hovannisian is the author of the four-volume history The Republic of Armenia, Armenia on the Road to Independence, and has edited and contributed to more than twenty books including The Armenian Image in History and Literature, The Armenian Genocide in Perspective, The Armenian People from Ancient to Modern Times, Remembrance and Denial, Looking Backward, Moving Forward, and six volumes on historic Armenian cities and provinces.
A reception cross the street at the NAASR Center will follow the program and the bookstore will be open. All of Dr. Hovannisian's available titles will be
