MAY 28: THE UNCHARTED COURSE TOWARD INDEPENDENCE

The Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) Armenia and the American University of Armenia (AUA) are co-hosting a lecture series dedicated to the centenary of the First Armenian Republic.
May 28 has become the symbol of resurrected Armenian statehood after centuries of foreign dominion. As it happened, Armenian independence in 1918 may have developed into a virtue born out of sheer necessity. 

This initial lecture and discussion focuses on the conditions during World War I which made the road to independence extremely treacherous and the challenges facing the desperate Armenian leadership seemingly insurmountable. But somehow the Republic managed to survive until the end of the war when strong rays of hope spread over the slopes of Mount Ararat. More here.

Monday, April 16, 18:30-20:00
AUA, Paramaz Avedisian Building, Manoogian Hall (40 Marshal Baghramyan str.)
