PanARMENIAN.Net - Oxford Armenian Studies launched short video “Research Notes” featuring Armenian studies scholars in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at University of Oxford, MassisPost reports.

Prof. Theo Maarten van Lint (Calouste Gulbenkian Professor of Armenian Studies), Dr. Hratch Tchilingirian (Associate Faculty) and Dr. David Zakarian (British Academy Fellow) highlight various aspects of their current research in these audio-visual notes.

“This new initiative aims to reach a wider audience beyond academia and to draw attention to the depth and scope of Armenian studies by providing a snippet of a subject or research findings,” explained Tchilingirian, who conceived and produced the clips.

The five “Research Notes” posted on social media so far have reached some ten thousand people online.

In “Research Notes 1”, Prof. van Lint speaks about his intellectual and academic journey into Armenian studies. In three additional clips (Notes 2, 3 and 4), he presents highlights of his work on medieval Armenian authors. Dr. Zakarian speaks about his research in medieval colophons (Notes 5) and women in 5th century Armenia (Notes 6). In Notes 7, Dr. Tchilingirian speaks about his research on identity and notes a “connection” to chess in 12th century Armenia and, in Notes 8, discusses deaconesses in the Armenian Church.
