Language practices among Lebanese Armenian adolescents – Dr. Chaghig Filian

March 24, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

SYNOPSIS: The session is about the impact of residential location on the language practices of Lebanese Armenian adolescents. It will explore the extent to which residential concentration within the established Armenian quarter of Bourj Hammoud has contributed to the vitality of the Western Armenian language in Lebanon and how the recent geographical dispersal of Lebanese Armenians into different areas of Lebanon, which traditionally have had less Armenian presence might lead to modifications in the perceived use and formal properties of the Western Armenian Language.

SPEAKER BACKGROUND: Dr. Chaghig Filian has recently obtained her PhD in Language, Discourse and Communication from King’s College London. She specializes in the Western Armenian language and her area of focus is the language practices of Lebanese Armenian adolescents.

BACKGROUND: The CAIA is organising another course to meet the demand from the community, thanks to a small grant from ‘Ealing Adult Education Department’. The course is also open and suitable to anyone with an interest in history, culture, and heritage.

The course offers:
– A better understanding of Armenian history, culture and heritage
– An opportunity for families to learn together about their past
– Improve prospects into further learning
– A chance to ask questions & interact with others in a friendly & welcoming environment

This course is designed by way of introduction to increase knowledge of Armenian history, culture, identity & dispersion and to enable adults/young people to understand better about where, why and how Armenians have arrived in UK and the challenges facing them.
