The History of the Ottoman Empire and its Subsequent Breakup after WWI
Agenda for the December 17th Meeting
The meeting "doors" will open at 9:30 a.m. and you can log in to join the meeting any time after that. Instructions on how to do so are given below. Once you join the meeting, you can communicate with other attendees by text using the CHAT option in ZOOM.
At 10:00, the presentation will begin. After President Bill Davison says his usual few words, Moderator Tom Reeve will introduce NCC member William Thayer, a frequent contributor to World Affairs Council programs, who will talk about “The History of the Ottoman Empire and its Subsequent Breakup after WWI”. He has travelled to many countries of the former Ottoman Empire and has given several talks on the region. He will be assisted by NCC members Vojin Joksimovich and Farouk Al-Nasser, as well as by our guest Nikolaos Karanoleglos. Vojin was born and raised in Serbia, a country subjugated by the Ottomans until 1878. He is the author of 3 books: Kosovo Crisis: A Study in Foreign Policy Mismanagement; The Revenge of the Prophet: How Clinton and his Predecessors Empowered Radical Islam; and Kosovo is Serbia. Farouk was born and raised in Iraq, and will discuss Turkey in relation to the Ottoman Empire. Farouk and Vojin have delivered numerous presentations to World Affairs Council groups on their former countries and related subjects. Nick Karanoleglos is a Greek citizen and served in the Press Office of Public Diplomacy of the American Embassy.
At 11:00 Tom will begin the Q&A. The basic approach is for anyone who wants to ask a question to text Tom a Zoom CHAT message indicating that and summarizing the question. Tom will then call on the person to ask the question.
At 12:00 we will end the meeting.
