Today, “The First Turkologist Student Congress” held with the support of the International Turkic Academy has started.
The head of the Academy Darkhan Kydyrali took part in the opening ceremony of the event, which was attended by well-known scholars of the Turkic world. He made a welcoming speech and wished success to the first work of the congress.
At the online congress, which will take place on September 4-5, students majoring in Turkology from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and Uzbekistan will report and exchange views on Turkic folklore, literature, linguistics and traditions.
It should be noted that in late May, the International Turkic Academy established a Council of departments of Turkic studies and held its first meeting.
Among participants of the online meeting were heads of Turkology departments from outstanding Institutes of Linguistics and universities of Turkic-speaking countries; they discussed issues concerning educational process in the field of modern Turkology. This first congress is a step towards the implementation of the decisions made at that meeting.
