Following its annual meeting held on December 10 in Boston, the Society for Armenian Studies (SAS) wishes to announce its new Executive Council for 2010. The officers are as follows: Prof. Kevork B. Bardakjian, President; Marc A. Mamigonian, Vice-President; Dr. Bedross Der Matossian, Secretary; Hovann Simonian, Treasurer; Prof. Richard ovannisian, Councilor; Sylva Manoogian, Councilor; Prof. Christina Maranci, Councilor.

The SAS is grateful to outgoing President Prof. Richard Hovannisian and to departing Executive Council members Prof. Ara Sanjian and Dr. Anahid Keshishian for their dedicated service.

During the past year, SAS marked its 35th anniversary with a major conference held at UCLA entitled “Armenian Studies at a Threshold” and a banquet that highlighted the Society’s record of accomplishments. It now looks forward to continuing its mission with renewed zeal and effort and to expanding its support from the Armenian public.

The Society for Armenian Studies was founded in 1974 by a group of scholars from the universities of California, Columbia and Harvard on the initiative of Richard G. Hovannisian, Dickran Kouymjian, Nina Garsoian, Avedis Sanjian, and Robert Thomson. It is dedicated to the development of Armenian Studies as an academic discipline.

The aims of the Society for Armenian Studies are to promote the study of Armenian culture and society, including history, language, literature, and social, political, and economic questions; to facilitate the exchange of scholarly information pertaining to Armenian studies around the world; and to sponsor panels and conferences on Armenian studies.

The programs of the Society include publication of a Newsletter on the Society’s activities and on current research on Armenia; publication of the Journal of the Society for Armenian Studies, encouragement, sponsorship and publication of research on all facets of Armenian culture and society; and such other activities as the SAS council may from time to time determine.

The SAS Secretariat is located at the Armenian Studies Program of California State University, Fresno. For more information, visit, e-mail, or write to Armenian Studies Program, California State University, Fresno, 5245 N Backer Ave. PB4, Fresno, CA 93740-8001.
