LOS ANGELES—The Armenian Graduate Student Association of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will host its 17th Annual Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies on February 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will be held at UCLA in Royce Hall 314 and will be followed by a catered reception.
For 17 years, the UCLA Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies has dedicated itself to encouraging, fostering, and promoting scholarly research among graduate students in the field of Armenian studies around the world.
This year features presentations by ten young scholars from the United States, France, China and Armenia on a variety of topics centered around the following themes: the role of literature and the press in culture and identity formation; late antique religious art; early modern circulation of art and ideas between Europe and the Near East; and contemporary sociopolitical movements.
“We are delighted to welcome stellar young scholars in the field of Armenian studies and to give them an opportunity to present their cutting-edge research, receive feedback, and network with their peers and the faculty at UCLA. This year, we are also pleased to welcome Dr. Sebouh David Aslanian, who will be our guest speaker at the event,” said Jennifer Manoukian, director of the 2019 UCLA Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies.
The colloquium is free and open to the public and will be live-streamed on the colloquium’s Facebook page.
