Explore works of art that demonstrate Armenia's impact on international trade during the Middle Ages as contemporary scholars discuss monuments, manuscripts, paintings, and other works from Armenia and beyond. This daylong symposium begins with a tribute to the scholars who led the way in the study of Armenian art in America in the second half of the 20th century: Sirarpie Der Nersessian, Nina Garsöian, Richard Hovannisian, and Thomas F. Mathews. It is developed in collaboration with The Armenian Center at Columbia University.
