A century ago the Young Turk government carried out deportations and massacres of various peoples in the Ottoman Empire: Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks, Jews, Arabs, and others. Several of these brutal relocations have been designated 'genocide,' yet the current Turkish state, along with the United States and other countries, refuses to label any of them 'genocide.' The denial of past violence and its erasure from historical memory has allowed violence and human rights abuses to continue, worldwide, to the present day. Historian Ronald Grigor Suny discusses these issues in a entitled The Persistent Past at the USF Tampa Library on Monday, April 23rd, 2012. Dr. Suny is the Charles Tilly Collegiate Professor of Social and Political History and Director of the Eisenberg Institute of Historical Studies at the University of Michigan, as well as Emeritus Professor of Political Science and History at the University of Chicago.
