The proposed project will support raising awareness about the cities where Armenians and Turks used to live together in the past, such as Istanbul, Kars, Diyarbakir, etc. through online publications of articles and essays on the practices of sharing common urban space. Materials developed within the project will also help to unfold new insights, open new perspectives on the practices of negotiation of cultural, historical and political differences and contribute to Armenia-Turkey normalisation process.
Upon the completion of project, most of the published (online) essays and articles will be collected, translated from Armenian/Turkish to English and compiled into a single book publication.
The Armenian-language translation of Birgul Oguz’s novel “HAH” from Turkish into Eastern Armenian was published by Antares publishing house, and it is currently available in book stores in Armenia. On December 16-18, 2017, HCA-Armenia hosted Birgul Oguz and the engaged literary translators in Yerevan for a series of promotional events.
