THE ARMENIAN POST-MEMORY PROJECT
A combination of archiving, researching, writing, and responsive art making, The Armenian Postmemory Project is a multi-year, interdisciplinary project that addresses the gendered role of threadwork as a signifier of identity and agent of cultural continuity. The ongoing project traces the lineage of Armenian needlelace and its relationship to memory and postmemory in the Armenian-American diaspora through multiple methodologies, including an inventory of textile heirlooms and family photographs, survey of existing scholarship, research in archives, study of private and public collections, hands-on instruction with experts in the field, and collection of oral histories.
