Winter Academic Term, 2004 (January 6 - April 30)


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 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.

Check Times, Location, and Availability Cost: No Data Given. Waitlist Code: No Data Given.
