"Don’t Fall off the Earth’: The Armenian Communities
in China from the 1880s to 1950s"


Dr. Khatchig Mouradian
Kazan Visiting Professor in Armenian Studies, Fall semester

Thursday, October 20, 2016
University Business Center, A. Peters Auditorium, Room 191

Hundreds of Armenians journeyed eastward to China in the late 19th century in search of opportunity, anchoring themselves in major cities, as well as in Harbin, a town that rose to prominence with the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway. A few thousand others arrived in the region escaping the Armenian Genocide and turmoil in the Caucasus in the years that followed. Many of these Armenians coupled their personal success with a dedication to community life, helping build small but vibrant communities (even a church and community centers) in Harbin, Shanghai, Tientsin, and other cities, despite conflicts, war, and foreign occupation that beset
the history of China in the first half of the 20th century.
