Sociologist Linda Barysh’s book “Armenian schools and Armenian identity in Turkey” has been published by “Iletishim” publishing house. The book includes excerpts from interviews with many students and teachers of Armenian schools.

Linda Barysh, PhD, currently works at the Department of Sociology at Aji Bektash University in Nevsehir.

    The book describes how the educational system was implemented in Armenian schools within the framework of the policy of honing, and the curriculum influenced the formation of the Armenian identity. How did the atmosphere of strict control in Armenian schools affect the environment and students? What role did the restrictions on the teaching of the Armenian language play in the passivation of the Armenian language or in its complete non-functioning?
