Osmanlı Ermenilerinde kültür modernleşmesi, cemaat okulları ve Abdülhamid rejimi

By Selçuk Akşin Somel and Selcuk Aksin Somel


This article discusses the relationship between the Armenian community and the Ottoman administration during the reign of Abdülhamid II (1876-1908) in terms of cultural and educational developments among the Armenians. The thematic focus is on the political conditions following the Russo-Ottoman War of 1877-1878, the emerging Armenian nationalism, and the repressive measures of the Ottoman administration on Armenian schools as a means of preventing the emergence of a new generation of separatist-minded Armenians. It is argued that this tension and confrontation between the Sublime Porte and the Armenian nationalist cadre displayed the basic impossibility for the continuation of an autocratic multi-ethnic empire in the age of ethnic nationalism
