The Armenian Institute is proud to host an evening honouring the trail-blazing historian and writer, Christopher J. Walker (1942—2017). His widely-read and admired book, Armenia: Survival of a Nation, led the way in presenting a scholarly, broad sweep of Armenian history to the wider public.
Christopher Walker continued writing and speaking about Armenians, taking every opportunity to raise issues of minority rights and concern about Genocide denial.
This evening is dedicated to Christopher Walker and his work, featuring a lecture by historian Dr Rebecca Jinks and additional short words of appreciation by fellow writers and friends, followed by a reception. Please join us in remembering this important member of our community.
