The proposed project will support raising awareness about the cities where Armenians and Turks used to live together in the past, such as Istanbul, Kars, Diyarbakir, etc. through online publications of articles and essays on the practices of sharing common urban space. Materials developed within the project will also help to unfold new insights, open new perspectives on the practices of negotiation of cultural, historical and political differences and contribute to Armenia-Turkey normalisation process.
Upon the completion of project, most of the published (online) essays and articles will be collected, translated from Armenian/Turkish to English and compiled into a single book publication.
Talk show with Aron Aji, Director of MFA in Literary Translation Program at the University of Iowa (USA) and the president of the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA). The talk is about literary translation, creativity of translation and its peculiarities, as well as Armenia-Turkey joint literary translation initiatives.
