Smbat Hakobyan

I am a Ph.D. student at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography, NAS Armenia. I do anthropological study of contemporary funerals in Yerevan – the capital of Armenia. I mainly focus on discourses – how people discuss problems and issues about funerals and I also explore practices, in particular how they change, transform in the course of time and what these discourses and practices display about contemporary Armenian culture and society.

Beyond funerals I am also interested in the theory of rituals and in social/cultural theory in general, I also hold a lot of seminars about qualitative research methods.
