    Armenian Studies Program presents
    Berj H. Haidostian Annual Distinguished LectureProf. Marie-Aude Baronian
    to speak on visual representations within the Armenian diaspora

    EVENT DATE: Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 7:00 pm

    The University of Michigan's Armenian Studies Program is pleased to
    announce that Marie-Aude Baronian will deliver the 2014 Berj H. Haidostian
    Annual Distinguished Lecture, titled "Missing Images: Textures of Memory in
    Diaspora." Baronian is the 2014 Manoogian Visiting Professor at the
    University of Michigan and an associate professor in film and visual
    culture at the University of Amsterdam. Her research focuses on various
    topics such as visual culture in the Armenian diaspora, ethics and
    aesthetics, archive, memory, and French thought. Her most recent books
    are Mémoire
    et Image. Regards sur la Catastrophe arménienne (2013) and Cinéma et
    Mémoire. Sur Atom Egoyan (2013). In the lecture, she will consider the
    relationship between images--particularly film--and memory in the context of
    the Armenian diaspora and the 1915 genocide.

    The Haidostian Annual Distinguished lectureship was established by the
    family of the late Dr. Berj Haidostian, a prominent and devoted physician
    in Michigan. The Haidostian family has a long and continuing relationship
    with the University of Michigan and the Armenian Studies Program. Every
    year, together with the Armenian Studies Program faculty they select a
    speaker from among internationally recognized experts on Armenia and
    Armenians. Recent Haidostian Distinguished Lecturers have included renowned
    playwright, novelist, and actor Eric Bogosian; famous director Atom Egoyan;
    Dr. Gerard Chaliand of Paris; Dr. Fiona Hill of the Brookings Institution;
    Mr. Thomas de Waal of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; and
    Dr. Vartan Gregorian of the Carnegie Foundation.

    The lecture is open to the public and will be followed by a question and
    answer period, and will also be video recorded and posted on our website at .
