The approach of this study on “connected revolutions” and Armenians in the Russian, Ottoman, and Iranian Revolutions in the early twentieth century draws its inspiration from concepts of connected histories and histoire croisée. It focuses on the circulation and flow of ideas and Armenian revolutionaries, activists, and intellectuals who were often involved in more than one of three revolutions.
