Prof. Barlow Der Mugrdechian, Berberian Coordinator of the Armenian Studies Program Fresno State, will present the new book
The Committee of Union and Progress: Founders, Ideology, and Structure is Volume 13 in the Armenian Series of The Press at California State University, Fresno. Prof. Barlow Der Mugrdechian, co-editor of the book, will present the new volume. The book has chapters by Dr. Ümit Kurt, Dr. Hans-Lukas Kieser, Dr. Dikran Kaligian, Dr. Raymond Kevorkian, and Duygu Coskuntuna. It was edited by Ümit Kurt, Ara Sarafian, and Prof. Barlow Der Mugrdechian.
The chapters included in this work were first presented as papers at a conference entitled “The Committee of Union and Progress: Founders, Ideology, and Structure” organized by Prof. Barlow Der Mugrdechian and Dr. Ümit Kurt, and sponsored by the Armenian Studies Program of California State University, Fresno, between October 12–13, 2018. The papers have since been edited and appear here in a single volume with a new historical introduction and illustrations.
The volume includes a collection of articles that reflect on Ottoman Armenians and the Turkish nationalist movement of the Committee of Union and Progress before WWI. The articles provide new, critical insights on the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923.
