Finally, Dr. Hovannisian will discuss the Northeastern Mediterranean coastal centers of Dort-Yol, the Sanjak of Alexandrettta, Musa Dagh, and Kessab, an area where the rugged and sturdy people repeatedly demonstrated their heroism.

Dr. Hovannisian will also present “Differing Armenian Choices in Times of Crisis” on Tuesday, February 14 at 3:00 pm at the University of South Florida (USF) Library, 4th Floor Grace Allen Room.
