The Ararat-Eskijian Museum Presents a Talk and book signing by Professor Richard Hovannisian April 27, 2014 4:00 p.m.
“Armenian Kesaria/Kayseri and Cappadocia”“Armenian Kesaria/Kayseri and Cappadocia” focuses on the history, religion, economic and social life, and cultural, educational, and political developments of the Armenians in the city of Kesaria (Gesaria) and its many outlying villages, including Talas, Everek, Fenesse, Tomarza, Chomakhlu, Injesu, Efkere, and Germir. There are several contributors to this volume along with Professor Richard Hovannisian. This volume derives from one of the 18 international conferences organized by Hovannisian between 1997 and 2010 relating to important historic Armenian regions, nearly all of which are now devoid of their native Armenian inhabitants. Professor Hovannisian is the past holder of the AEF Chair in Modern History at UCLA. He is the author of Armenia on the Road to Independence, the 4-volume history The Republic of Armenia, and has edited and contributed to more than 20 books including The Armenian Genocide in Perspective, The Armenian People from Ancient to Modern Times, Remembrance and Denial, Looking Backward, Moving Forward, and The Armenian Genocide: Cultural and Ethical Legacies.
