Armenians in the Making of Modern Georgia
2016 (English)In: Armenians in Post-Socialist Europe / [ed] Konrad Siekierski & Stefan Troebst, Köln: Böhlau, 2016, 69-85 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
While sharing a common ethnic heritage and national legacy, and an ambiguous status in relation to the Georgian state and ethnic majority, the Armenians in Georgia comprise not one, but several distinct communities with divergent outlooks, concerns, and degrees of assimilation. There are the urbanised Armenians of the capital city, Tbilisi (earlier called Tiflis), as well as the more agricultural circle of Armenians residing in the Javakheti region in southwestern Georgia. Notwithstanding their differences, these communities have both helped shape modern Armenian political and cultural identity, and still represent an intrinsic part of the societal fabric in Georgia.
