Title
Collective Memory and Diasporic Articulations of Imagined Homes: Armenian Community Centres in Montreal
Abstract
The author examines the role of two Montreal Armenian community centres, in relation to the local dwelling place of Montreal, the distant homeland, and the rest of the Armenian diaspora. By describing the characteristics of the two largest Armenian community centres in Montreal, (the Armenian Community Centre and the ABGU Centre), the author analyzes how these mediated social spaces embody elements that represent a distant home, a diaspora, and the local dwelling place - complete with organizations, symbols, imagery, iconography, and language.
