"Let's Read the City"

Public engagement in archaeology can take different forms. Lori Khatchadourian of the Department of Near Eastern Studies recently partnered with an all-female Armenian media platform called Urbanista (Ուրբանիստա), whose mission is to foster public debate on matters of urban planning, urban development, architecture, and other urban issues. Urbanista asked Professor Khatchadourian to share her research on Armenia’s industrial ruins for an 8-part educational series called Let’s Read the City (Կարդանք քաղաքը). In three installments, Dr. Khatchadourian speaks for a general audience on ‘ruin economics’, post-socialist industrial heritage, and the lifeways and lifeforms that are taking shape in Armenia’s decaying Soviet factories.
