Post Semerdjian to Speak at NAASR on Armenians in Aleppo, Then and Now

BELMONT, Mass.Dr. Elyse Semerdjian will give a lecture entitled, The Armenian Presence in Aleppo: Glorious Past, Uncertain Future, on Thurs., Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m., at the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) Center in Belmont.

Elyse Semerdjian

The growth of Aleppos Christian quarter coincided with the migration of Armenians from Anatolia and Iran beginning in the 16th century. By the 20th century, more Armenians were forcibly deported to Aleppo during the Armenian Genocide. As part of a larger reconstruction of the early history of Aleppos Christian quarter based on archival documents from the sharia court archives in Syria and the Ottoman archives in Turkey, this paper explores the mostly unknown history of Armenians in the formative years of Aleppos Christian quarter. The talk will also include references to 20th-century migration after the Armenian Genocide, which greatly altered the composition of Armenians in Aleppo, and will examine the implications of the current war on the future of Syrias Armenian community.

Elyse Semerdjian is Associate Professor of Islamic World/Middle Eastern History and the director of Global Studies at Whitman College. A specialist in early modern Ottoman history and Syria, she authored Off the Straight Path: Illicit Sex, Law, and Community in Ottoman Aleppo (Syracuse University Press, 2008) as well as several articles on gender, non-Muslims, and law in the Ottoman Empire.

She received her M.A. in Middle Eastern studies from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and her Ph.D. in history from Georgetown University. She is a two-time Fulbright awardee and is currently writing on Islamicized Armenians and the collective memory of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey and Syria. Semerdjian continues to research the social history of the Armenians of Saliba Judayda, the Christian quarter of Aleppo, focusing on the formative 17th and 18th centuries.

The NAASR Center is located at 395 Concord Ave. in Belmont, Mass. For more information about Semerdjians lecture, contact NAASR by calling (617) 489-1610 or e-mailing hq@naasr.org.
