    Question: Who are the panel members besides Akcam and Balakian?

    You know what I would like to see? Hard-line Armenian academicians and NON-academicians invited to 100th anniversary events.
    And why do we always have to hear from academicians? Are they in charge of Hai Tahd now?

    Please tell us more about the Melikian Center at ASU.
