An Illustrated Lecture by
Dr. Richard G. Hovannisian
AEF Professor of Modern Armenian History, UCLA
Sponsored by
Armenian Church of the Holy Translators And National Association for Armenian Studies and Research
After traveling through much of historic Western Armenia four years ago (presented in a talk at the Church of the Holy Translators in 2009), Prof. Richard Hovannisian returned to Asia Minor, this time as historian-guide of a tour organized by NAASR and led by Mr. Armen Aroyan.

Beginning with the rock-hewn Orthodox cave churches of Cappadocia, the group traveled to Caesarea/Gesaria, Talas, Evereg-Fenese, Chomakhlu, and over the Taurus Mountains to Hadjin, Sis, Adana, Tarsus, Mersin, Selefke, Dortyol, Antioch, Musa Dagh, Killis, Aintab, Zeitun, and Marash. Scenes from these former vibrant centers of Armenian life will be shown and discussed by
Professor Hovannisian in this special Boston-area presentation.

Richard 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 eight volumes on historic Armenian cities and provinces, including the recently-published Armenian Constantinople, co-edited by Hovannisian and Simon Payaslian.

A reception will immediately follow the program. Many of Prof. Hovannisian's available titles will be on sale and available for signing.

Finding Zabel Yesayan
A Documentary by Lara Aharonian and Talin Suciyan

Followed by discussion with Talin Suciyan

An Armenian writer, activist, and feminist, Zabel Yesayan was one of the most prominent Armenian intellectuals of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As a member of an Armenian fact-finding delegation, she witnessed the aftermath of the bloody massacres of Adana in 1909 and gave a stark account in Averagneru Mech (Among the Ruins). The only woman on the "black list" of the Armenian intellectuals arrested on the night of April 24, 1915, she was able to escape to Bulgaria. After the war, she immigrated to Soviet Armenia and in the 1940s died under mysterious ircumstances, a victim of Stalin's Great Purge.

Finding Zabel Yesayan, a 40-minute documentary, traces the writer's turbulent life and is based on family archives, novels, documents, photographs, and reflections on her life and work by descendants, acquaintances, and scholars.

Talin Suciyan is an Istanbul Armenian journalist who lived in Armenia from 2007-08. She is currently based in Munich, where she is pursuing her graduate studies and serves as a teaching fellow at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. She has contributed regularly to Agos (from 2007-2010) and other Turkish newspapers.
Karabakh/ Apre 'ambasciata' a Washington, non riconosciuta Il rappresentante: diamo stessi servizi di sede diplomatica

Roma, 30 mar. (TMNews) - Il Nagorno-Karabakh ci prova a esercitare una pressione per un riconoscimento aprendo a Washington "un'ambasciata" ovviamente non riconosciuta. Lo racconta il sito internet Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

La provincia resasi di fatto indipendente dall'Azerbaigian e teatro di una sanguinosa guerra tra il 1988 e il 1994 è riconosciuta dalla sola Armenia. "Noi seguiamo le stesse procedure e forniamo la stessa assistenza e gli stessi servizi di un'ambasciata", spiega Robert Avetisyan, che si presenta come Rappresentante permanente della Repubblica del Nagorno-Karabakh negli Stati uniti.

L'"ambasciata" non ha segni distintivi, come una bandiera, e Avetisyan non è dotato di passaporto diplomatico.
