Title
Familiar Faces and Nostalgic Places: Family Photographs as Instruments of Memory and Identity in the Montreal Armenian Community
Abstract
The author investigates a small corpus of family photographs, taken prior to and after the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923), which have been passed on through generations. Her interest lies in determining the meaning of these images in relation to a history of trauma in the family, and their settlement in Montreal.
