Conducting the seminar by a special guest from London Rahima Abduvaliyeva


Professor, Doctor of Philology - linguist in the field of comparative-historical Indo-European linguistics, educated in the best universities in Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg), England (Guildford), Germany (Kassel) and India (Delhi);
She is the author of a number of textbooks and textbooks on the languages ​​of India, both Hindi and Sanskrit, published both in Russian and German;
In 2005, her book "Phenomenon-sandhi in Sanskrit" in German was presented at the Gisela Bon Prize for merits in the study of Indian culture in the FRG. 

In March 2011, she was awarded  the Europen Medal of Franz Kafka for her 20-years work to popularize Chingiz Aitmatov's works in Europe and the UK.

Aitmatov’s first work – the novella entitled Betme bet or Face to Face (1957) – was written about a deserter. For that era it was an act of rare courage, since prior to that the only person in the Soviet Union to have written about prisoners-of-war during the war of 1941-1945 was the Nobel Prize winner, Mikhail Sholokhov, in his story The Fate of a Man. This boldness on the part of a writer making his debut could have ended tragically, if Alexander Tvardovsky had not rallied to Aitmatov’s support. From then on the writer from Kirghizstan always used to give a copy from the first edition of all his new works to both Tvardovsky and Mukhtar Auezov – his older Kazakh friend and mentor.

The University of KazNU named of Al-Farabi invited Rakhim Abduvaliev as a special guest for the seminar. In 2017, on October 30, Rahma Abduvalieva held a seminar for students and teachers of the Faculty of Philology, the Department of World and European Languages.
