Ara Sanjian: Armenian History Textbooks in Transition

Dr. Ara Sanjian, of the Armenian Studies Center at the University of Michigan, Dearborn, does a brief content analysis of the 2012 edition of the Armenian history textbook used at Yerevan State University. He points out uneven coverage of the accomplishments of various Soviet-era leaders, a heavy focus on the genocide, and minimal concentration on the independence period and the present. Dr. Sanjian was a panelist at the END OF TRANSITION conference, hosted by USC Institute of Armenian Studies on April 9-10, 2017.
