This course will explore the history of Armenian literature from the 5th to the 15th centuries. Armenia underwent a profound cultural, social, and political transformation following the introduction of Christianity in the fourth, and the invention of a native script in the fifth century. With the ensuing efflorescence of Armenian literature, there emerged a new Armenian tradition that characterized the Armenian ethos well into the nineteenth century. This course will look at the foundations of the Armenian self-image. It will also trace the rise of fresh themes and new genres and the impact on Armenian literature of neighbors and new comers, literary reactions and interactions, and political aspirations. Due attention will be paid not only contemporary political, demographic, social, and cultural changes but also to the values and forces that shaped literature in Armenia proper and the Armenian communities aboard, paving the way for modern Armenian literature. Two papers and a take home final are required. Grade based on attendance, participation in discussions, papers and exam. No prerequisites.
