Debate on the book “Diasporalogue”
On December 14, 2017, the Muscari association had the pleasure to organize, with the support of UGAB Lyon, a presentation-debate about the book Diasporalogue (Editions Thaddée), in the presence of its authors – Serge Avédikian and Tigrane Yégavian – and moderator Mihran Amtablian.
“What do we really know about the history of the Armenians of France? How do they live their dual belonging within the Republic? What are the debates that fascinate them and the challenges they face?
For the first time, two generations of French people of Armenian origin engage an open dialogue to go beyond the clichés by sharing what built them in their respective professions: cinema and theatre for one, journalism for the other.
Should we give in to assimilation perceived as inexorable? Or should we be careful to review the mechanisms of transmission, without diluting the legacy? Both are of the opinion that it is possible to think historically as a duel and heir of cultures in permanent dialogue. From this dialogue springs a living exchange where the testimony of the respective experiences gradually gives way to a reflection on the major issues of a changing diaspora. ”
