Noting publication of an illustrated multilingual book titled: "I. Uluslararasi Ani - Kars Sempozumi: The First International Symposium of ANi - Kars". The editors are Oktay Belli, Ayhan Yardimciel, Vedat Evren Belli and Cengiz Celik.
I can't locate a webpage on the book. The "ANi City" Facebook feed https://www.facebook.com/AN%C4%B0-City- ... f=NEWSFEED) has photos of the book cover and some of its pages the information below in Turkish, and I've added teh Google Translate version below.
Turkish language: "ni şehrinin Türkler tarafından fethinin 950. yıldönümü anısına, 14-15 Ağustos 2014 tarihleri arasında Kafkas Üniversitesi bünyesinde düzenlenilen I. Uluslararası Ani ..Kars Sempozyumu'nun bildiriler kitabı yayımlandı.
Kitap için ..DOSTUM SAYIN HOCAM Ayhan Yardimciel'e Teşekkür Ederim."
Google Translate: "The book of the 1st International Ani .. Kars Symposium, which was held in Kafkas University between 14-15 August 2014 in memory of the 950th anniversary of the conquest of the Ani city by the Turks, was published."
I had heard of the symposium but have not yet seen the book (I think it was published in the second half of 2016).
Oktay Belli has made a career out of publishing these hefty "symposium" books - there are a whole series of them on Van, published almost yearly. Their contents consist of articles by various authors on various subjects and range from good to interesting to abysmally bad. Unfortunately, what is universal within the content is an uncritical acceptance of the official line - "restorations" are always good things, no matter how destructive or heavy-handed they might be in reality; history is always a pro-Turkish one; Armenian sites and influences tend to be minimised in importance.
For this volume on Ani, based on the facebook photos, it will be very interesting to see photographs of objects found during the 1990s-to-date excavations, none of which have ever been on public display. However, I'm not optimistic on the accuracy of the book's contents when they have a google earth plan of Ani with "Abugamir kilisesi" marked as being in the citadel!
