"The Name of a Place" is a podcast that encapsulates the experiences of women who have undergone displacement and settled in Armenia due to wars and conflicts. Each episode delves into a unique case of the migration/forced displacement dynamics within Armenia and the region.
The podcast delves beyond the physical and geographical aspects of displacement, exploring the emotional aspects that often go unacknowledged by women who have survived such traumatic experiences. It provides a space for these women to gain a space to comprehend and reflect upon their painful experience. Each episode bears the name of the place where these women left their past and lost their home, both in a narrow and comprehensive sense. Many of them now have no other way to return but through mental maps based on their own memories.
