Reproduction of Armenianness in Diasporic Spaces
A Comparative Analysis of Armenianness in Turkish, Lebanese and British Cases
©2020 Edited Collection 316 Pages
This research is conceived as an empirically grounded analysis of ethnicity and diasporic identity. It seeks to understand how ethnicity works and is reproduced in diasporic space through focusing on the Armenian Diaspora in Turkey, Lebanon and Britain. Differently from traditional approaches, this book shows us that Armenianness is not a holistic "thing". Rather, it is socially constructed and consists of various cues affected by interactions and contexts. This book describes that the reproduction of Armenianness in diasporic spaces is a patchwork having countless patterns, colours, and meanings. Although all define themselves as Armenian, their understandings of Armenianness vary. Armenianness sometimes seems to be ethnic, nationalist, political, moderate or congregational among diasporic spaces.
