This is the third of a three-part series on the contemporary situation of Armenian communities in the Middle East. The series will be a very timely and thought-provoking intervention during a tense time in the homeland, region, and beyond. By focusing on the Armenian minorities, broader questions regarding diaspora, minority politics, migration, and more will be examined. The third session will focus on Turkey. The first, in Fall, focused on Lebanon; the second, in Winter, focused on Syria and Iran.

Panelists joining us from across the US, Europe, Armenia, and Australia are:

James Barry, Research Fellow at the Alfred Deakin Institute, Deakin University
Marisa Della Gatta, Adjunct Professor of Political Science, University of Bari
