Transformations of Armenian Identity from Late Antiquity to the Modern Age: A Contextualized Analysis.
The purpose of this conference is to explore Armenian identity from the remote past to the present. This conference will touch upon issues that have faced the Armenians and how they have affected Armenian identity through the ages – how a small kingdom and people have been able to keep their cultural independence and survive. Armenian identity has gone through many changes, and our discussions will touch upon not only elements of continuity, but also rupture. The papers from the conference will be edited by Touraj Daryaee and published by Mazda Publishers, an academic publishers since 1980s which deals with the Armenian and Iranian world. The scheduled publication is in 2016.
