Fall Academic Term, 2003 (September 2 - December 19)


The Armenian Studies Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, began in 1976 with the introduction of courses in the Western Armenian language and a survey of Armenian history. In 1981 the Alex Manoogian Chair in Modern Armenian History was established, thanks to the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Manoogian. Six years later, the Marie Manoogian Chair in Armenian Language and Literature was created, making the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor a major center of Armenian Studies in the United States.

Courses taught by Professor Kevork B. Bardakjian (literature) and a Professor of Armenian history constitute the core of the Armenian Studies Program complemented by outreach activities, and the Armenian Language Summer Institute in Yerevan, Armenia. In addition to language, literature and history instruction, the Armenian Studies Program offers courses on Armenian architecture, Armenian-American literature, the Modern Armenian Renaissance, and Armenian intellectual history.

This course will explore various aspects of the Christian Armenian identity, from the earliest times to the 1990s, against a historical and political background, with a greater emphasis on the more modern times. It will highlight the formation of the Armenian self-image; its principle features (political, religious, cultural); and its historical evolution in a multi-religious and multi-national region that has undergone territorial and cultural transformations and has experienced many conflicts, at times deadly, resulting from the clash of national-ethnic identities and aspirations, governed and driven by oppression, distrust, religious and cultural intolerance, and aggressive political designs to name but a few. There will be class discussions. Students will be required to write one short term paper (5-7 pages long) and a final paper (8-10 pages long) reflecting research on a selected topic.
