“Armenians and Progressive Politics” conference due in Sept

PanARMENIAN.Net - After a two-year hiatus, the “Armenians and Progressive Politics” (APP) conference will reappear on September 26-27 in Greater Boston, Mass., the Armenian Weekly reports.

This year’s theme will be Armenian-Turkish relations, including a number of panels covering Armenian Genocide denial, reparations, media, Turkish-Armenian exchanges, and Turkish civil society.

The conference will consist of panels on Sept 27, and an opening plenary on Sept 26 evening, featuring a discussion between David Barsamian of Alternative Radio and noted scholar, activist, and public intellectual Noam Chomsky. All activities will take place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

As in past years, APP is being organized by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF). This year, the conference is co-sponsored by Alternative Radio, which is marking its 30th anniversary, and the MIT Armenian Society (MITAS).
