Los Angeles — After months of preparation, the USC Institute of Armenian Studies is set to present on November 20, a one-day symposium on the Armenian Diaspora in its present configuration, focusing on the imperatives and determinants of collective action, and to explore the modalities of achieving it through electoral processes.
The symposium will discuss critically the different methods of transnational cooperation and cohesion, and search for mechanisms that would maximize the legitimacy and efficacy of a pan-diasporan leadership structure.
By all indications, the Diaspora Symposium has generated great interest in Armenia and among Diaspora communities worldwide.
Those wishing to attend please RSVP by emailing: [email protected] in order to make arrangements for seating and lunch. There will be no charge for this event except parking fees for those using USC facilities near Gate 3 on Figueroa Street.
The Symposium will meet 9:30 to 4:30 at Town and Gown on the USC Campus.
Those wishing to follow the proceedings on the internet, the Link is: http://capture.usc.edu/mediasite/Viewer/?peid=555571291d934fcfb6650cb76ebe456d1d
