Salpi Ghazarian, Director of the USC Institute of Armenian Studies, is joined by Dr. Katy Pearce, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Washington.
How did Dr. Pearce first become interested in studying the Caucasus? How does she blend her interest in Armenia and Azerbaijan with her research in communications. Dr. Pearce both studies and contributes to social media. She talks about understanding societal transformations as evidenced in internet and social media, and their implications for academics, and especially for Armenian Studies.
Following the interview (52:08), you will hear Gegham Mughnetsyan, The Chitjian Research Archivist at the Institute of Armenian Studies at USC, present 'Eench by Eench', a look at life with an Armenian twist.
