Join us for an intimate evening discussion about Srpuhi Dussap and Zabel Yessayan.
Well known during their lifetimes, Srpuhi Dussap and Zabel Yessayan wrote books about women’s rights, human rights, and Armenian life during the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. The Armenian International Women’s Association, AIWA, recently published the translations of Yessayan’s The Gardens of Silihdar, My Soul in Exile, and In the Ruins and Dussap’s novel Mayda: Echoes of Protest. The editors will discuss the transformation of the Armenian language and society which inspired these pioneering works.
Registration for Zoom meeting through the Armenian Institute.
