HISTORY (W18)132D  ARMENIANS ANC/EARLYBERBERIAN, H.

This course surveys the history of Armenia and Armenians from ethnogenesis to the early modern period at the end of the 1700s within a regional and global context that takes into account interactions and encounters with the empires and peoples that encompassed their orbit. Itproceeds in chronological order but with a strong thematic approach from ethnogenesis through dynastic rule, relations with Iranian, Byzantine/Roman, Arab states and cultures, and the last Armenian kingdom to the rise and collapse of an Armenian kingdom in Cilicia, imperial rule under the Ottomans and Safavids, and ends with important developments in the early modern period from “trade diaspora” (specifically New Julfan) to print culture and national revival.
