Professor Bilal will provide an overall introduction to an anthology meant to end the invisibility of activist women in Armenian historiography. Then, drawing on Yelbis Gesartin's work, she will discuss the interrelatedness of discourses on gender, sexuality, body, emotion, culture, history, nation, modernity, land and music in 19th century Armenian intellectual narratives.
