Q-News Vol.1 No.2 Special Issue: Central Asian Cultural Heritage
25 October 2013
Keep your finger on the pulse of the University of Central Asia (UCA) with the second issue of our quarterly magazine, Q-News!
Since our inaugural edition, we have received a gratifying and overwhelmingly positive response. I am confident that Q-News will strengthen communication between the University and our diverse partners, while highlighting recent activities and achievements at UCA.
A critical part of UCA’s mission is to help the different people of the region to preserve and draw upon their rich cultural traditions and heritages as assets for the future. This issue features UCA’s research and learning activities, with a special focus on cultural heritage.
The depth of the University’s commitment to cultural preservation is evident through the work of our Research Fellows, the launch of an exciting new pilot textbook and course on Central Asian musical traditions, and the donation of an exceptional humanities library collection to UCA.
Other highlights include the launch of an expanded edition of UCA’s bilingual policy glossary, the World Economic Forum and a feature discussing the lively exchange between UCA’s executive designer, AECOM UK, who is designing phase I of UCA’s main Naryn campus, and young learners from Naryn Oblast.
