MISSION HILLS — Dr. David E. Gutman, Associate Professor of History at Manhattanville College, will present his recently published book The Politics of Armenian Migration to North America, 1885-1915 (Edinburgh Univ. Press) at the Ararat-Eskijian Museum, Sheen Chapel, 15105 Mission Hills Road, Mission Hills, CA 91345, on Sunday, March 8, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. The program is co-sponsored by the Ararat-Eskijian Museum and the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR).
Gutman sheds light on the relationship between the imperial state and its Armenian populations in the decades leading up to the Armenian Genocide. He also places the Ottoman Empire squarely in the middle of global debates on migration, border control, and restriction in this period, adding to our understanding of the global historical origins of contemporary immigration politics and other issues of relevance today in the Middle East region, such borders and frontiers, migrants and refugees, and ethno-religious minorities.
This event is free and open to the public. A reception and refreshments will immediately follow the program and question-and-answer session.
