In 1918 the Republic of Armenia was declared and immediately faced unimaginable difficulties and threats to its survival. There was strong sympathy for the plight of Armenia among Americans and considerable discussion in policy-making circles about what America’s role could or should be in ensuring Armenia’s future. This culminated in the 1919 American military mission to Armenia led by Maj. Gen. James Harbord and the debate over the U.S. assuming a mandate for Armenia.

In 1987, filmmaker Dr. J. Michael Hagopian, working with film footage originally shot during the Harbord mission’s travels in Western and Eastern Armenia, augmented with additional images and commentary by historian Prof. Richard G. Hovannisian, released the film Mandate for Armenia, a unique document of this pivotal historical episode.

Join us for a rare screening of this important film and a discussion of its creation, the historical context of the events in the film, and its current-day repercussions, featuring a panel that includes Dr. Armen Baibourtian, newly appointed Armenian Consul General in Los Angeles; Dr. Carla Garapedian, Filmmaker and Member, Board of Directors, Armenian Film Foundation; and Mr. Marc A. Mamigonian, Director of Academic Affairs, National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR); with opening and closing words from Narekatsi Chairholder Prof. S. Peter Cowe and Hovannisian Chairholder Prof. Sebouh Aslanian.

 

Free and open to the public. Reception immediately following the program.
