Panel at Northeastern to Consider Artsakh’s Past, Present, and Future


Dr. Anna Ohanyan

BOSTON, Mass.—On Fri., Feb. 12, at 7 p.m., Dr. Anna Ohanyan, Richard B. Finnegan Distinguished Professor of Political Science and International Relations at Stonehill College, will moderate a panel discussion entitled, “Nagorno-Karabagh (Artsakh): Past, Present, and Future,” at Northeastern University, McLeod Suites, Curry Student Center (4rd floor), 346 Huntington Ave. in Boston. Dr. Simon Payaslian, Charles K. and Elisabeth M. Kenosian Chair in Modern Armenian History and Literature at Boston University, will provide an historical introduction to the discussion.

The program is organized by the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) and is co-sponsored by the Northeastern Armenian Students Association.

Dr. Simon Payaslian

The challenges faced by Nagorno-Karabagh have their roots in the historical maneuverings of regional powers and in actions taken at both the birth and the death of the Soviet Union. Today, more than two decades after the war with Azerbaijan that resulted in Karabagh’s precarious state of autonomy, its future remains uncertain.

How should Karabagh deal with Azeri border aggression? Should it attempt to trade territories for peace and recognition from Azerbaijan? What are the most important ways for Diasporan Armenians to support Karabagh? What does its long-term future look like? Our panelists will explore these and other timely issues at this forum.

The program is free and open to the public. There will be a reception and refreshments immediately following the program, as well as a question-and-answer session. Parking is available at Gainsborough Garage and other campus parking facilities.
