The Orthodox Christian Studies Center at Fordham University, the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR), and the Krikor and Clara Zohrab Information Center will present a webinar with Konrad Siekierski on “The Materiality of Armenian Christianity: Gospel Books as Sacred Objects” on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, at 7 pm (Eastern) / 4 pm (Pacific).

The webinar will be accessible live on Zoom (registration required) and on NAASR’s YouTube Channel.

Konrad Siekierski is a PhD candidate in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, King’s College London. Based upon 10 years of ethnographic research, his doctoral thesis, A Vow to Go: Religion, Reunion, and Roots in Armenian Pilgrimage, examines the different forms that pilgrimage takes today in the Armenian culture.

In 2021, he conducted a research project Gospel Books as Home Saints: Between Vernacular Christianity and Armenian National Heritage, funded by the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research and Knights of Vartan Fund for Armenian Studies. Currently he is a recipient of The Orthodox Christian Studies NEH Dissertation Completion Fellowship at Fordham University. Konrad edited two collective volumes and authored several articles in academic journals.
