"Subjects or Citizens?: Armenians From The Ottoman Empire To The Turkish Republic" Virtual Webinar
Please go to this link: bit.ly/armenianstudieskilicdagi2 Also streamed on YouTube on the Armenian Studies channel: bit.ly/armenianstudiesyoutube More than 90% of the Ottoman Armenians were annihilated between 1914 and 1922. However, after the declaration of the Turkish Republic in 1923, according to official numbers of the 1927 census, there were still around 80,000 Armenians and around 360,000 Christians and Jews in Turkey, which was 2.6% of the whole population. Dr. Ohannes Kiliçdagi will discuss the transition from Empire to Republic in terms of treatment of Armenians and if it made any difference for them. He will decipher the approach of the state to the Armenian community to understand the problems they have faced from the beginning of the republic to today.

Rock
An Evening with Y&T
Before Mötley Crüe, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the early 1970s, little did they know they would set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the biggest acts of the ’80s became popular opening for headliners Y&T—and cut their teeth on the band, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Mötley Crüe. Born in Oakland, California, Y&T is one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s own innovators of the hard rock sound. Whether performing to a festival crowd of fifty-thousand or in an intimate nightclub, Y&T’s high-energy set and passionate performances still captivate legions of fans around the globe, proving Y&T’s music timeless. Originally formed as Yesterday and Today, the initial powerhouse quartet—featuring Dave Meniketti (lead guitar/lead vocals), Phil Kennemore (bass), Leonard Haze (drums), and Joey Alves (rhythm guitar)—tore through the ’70s and ’80s with their own brand of hard rock. After two ’70s albums on London Records, they shortened their name to Y&T and released eight albums on A&M in the ’80s. Two more albums with Geffen Records marked an era of change with Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper, Suicidal Tendencies, Megadeth) on drums and Stef Burns (Alice Cooper, Berlin, Huey Lewis) on guitar. With the passing of Kennemore, Haze, and Alves, it’s Meniketti who carries on the legacy that is Y&T. Y&T continues to tour the world, featuring the dynamic original frontman Dave Meniketti (lead guitar/lead vocals), John Nymann (guitar/vocals), Aaron Leigh (bass/vocals), and Mike Vanderhule (drums/vocals), playing songs that span the band’s five-decade career and including all the hits and fan favorites. Prepare to have your face melted.
