Course Code: 26770

This course covers the most important themes in the history of Armenians and Armenia from the nineteenth century to the present and does so within a regional (i.e., Middle East and Caucasus) and global context. It focuses on the Armenians living in ancestral lands within the Russian and Ottoman empires as well as those living outside in the Diaspora, especially in the post-genocide period. It examines the problems and impact of imperialism, revolution, and genocide on the development of the history of Armenians and their resonance today. The course culminates with an exploration of the Velvet Revolution of 2018 and its consequences. As we explore this history, we will focus on Armenians as imperial and national subjects in ancestral lands as well as transimperial and transnational subjects in a diaspora that has had a complex relationship with the idea and reality of homeland.
