ALMA’s “In Conversation” Series begins on Feb. 20 with poet and singer/songwriter Arto Vaun, and Prof. Taline Voskeritchian moderating the conversation. The program will center on the question of literature’s relevance in diasporic culture and space.
This ongoing series seeks to be a forum where intellectuals and artists, along with the audience, engage in an open conversation.
Born in Cambridge, MA, Arto Vaun has attended Harvard and Glasgow University where he is currently finishing a PhD in English Literature. Vaun was the co‐founder of Aspora Literary Journal in Los Angeles, a co‐editor of The Armenian Weekly, and is the current poetry editor of Glimpse Journal. His next book of poems, Isinglass, is forthcoming from Carcanet Press and his new recording, The Cynthia Sessions, is being released in February 2013.
Professor Taline Voskeritchian teaches writing and literature at Boston University. Her work has appeared in Agni Review, London Review of Books, Bookforum, The Nation, Jadaliyya, among others.
