Doctor of Law, Professor

August 2018 marked the 350th anniversary of Bukhar-Jyra, a great Kazakh poet and statesman. As a scholar, Aitkhojin will discuss the memories about the history of his people. Memories are important to make sure every person, while living in the present, also thinks about the future and remembers about the past. A prominent Austrian writer and Nobel Prize winner (1981) Elias Kanetti once wrote – “humankind is vulnerable only in those areas, where it does not have experience and memories”.

The lecture will touch on his role in the evolution of the Kazakh ethnos and its nationhood. It will highlight the importance of connecting and contextualizing historical memory of Kazakh people with the contemporary processes.

Professor K. K. Aitkhojin is the Head of the Department of Constitutional and International Law and Customs Affairs of Eurasian Law Academy named after D. A. Kunaev. His research interests include jurisprudence, constitutional law, higher education, patriotic education of young people, preservation of values and spiritual culture of Kazakh people.
