ARMENIAN AND AMERICAN: THE CHANGING FACE OF ETHNIC IDENTITY AND DIASPORIC NATIONALISM, 1915-1955

This dissertation traces the development of Armenian-American community life between 1915 and 1955, with a special emphasis on ideas and internal dialogue about the meaning of ethnic identity and the relationship between an ethnic group and its ancestral homeland. Going from the traumas of the 1915 Turkish genocide through the coming-of- age of much of the third generation, the study looks at the role of those ethnic institutions, especially the Armenian political parties, which profoundly influenced the nature of the Armenian-American experience.
