We welcome graduate student projects that explore the mutually constitutive relationship between ancient and modern Armenian culture. Each paper should grapple with intersecting elements of both past and present. In the spirit of collaborative cooperation, invited faculty members will also foster mentorship within the field of Armenian Studies by participating actively in panel discussion.
Questions to consider might include (but are not limited to):
