The Centre for Western Armenian Studies and Ghent University are delighted to present this year's Taniel Varouzhan Annual Lecture by Talar Chahinian.

Talar Chahinian holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from UCLA and lectures in the Program for Armenian Studies at UC Irvine, where she is also Visiting Faculty in the Department of Comparative Literature.

Over the last several decades, the increasingly layered and diverse Armenian communities, both in Armenia and in the diaspora, have produced new contact zones between the Armenian language's Eastern and Western forms.

By focusing on emergent online contact zones such as digital publication sites for literature and social media content dedicated to Armenian language arts, this presentation examines the Armenian language's vitality in the digital domain.
