Academic Retreats

Encouraging innovative, out-of-the-box, disruptive thinking about Armenians in the 21st century

A weekend of critical thinking with students from around the country, to explore social and political issues. Thought leaders, invited from various universities, encourage original and critical thinking by using the Socratic method to induce questioning, rather than resort to quick and obvious answers. Beyond challenging students to challenge themselves and think deeper, the purpose of the retreat is to identify those areas of research that the Institute can promote and that students themselves would like to tackle.
