Harry Wood Gallery is pleased to present "Borders, Identity and Pedagogy," an exhibition featuring some of the stories, original photography, music and sounds from Garine Palandjian’s dissertation research on teachers' memories and experiences of coexistence and crossing borders in Armenia, Turkey and Azerbaijan. The purpose of the exhibit is to share diverse oral histories and memories of educators who are deeply entangled in the complex and conflicting Armenia-Azerbaijani and Armenia-Turkey relations. Through this exhibit, we can begin to look beyond the dominant narratives of war and conflict in hopes of rehumanizing one (an)other, towards a peaceful future together.
