AKHP Public Lecture, Khorog: Phraseological and Lexical Synonymity in Unwritten Languages (Using the Example of Shughni Language)
Synonymity is believed to be an attribute of only literary written languages, however, research findings by the lecturer have demonstrated that it can also be found in unwritten languages. The origin of unwritten languages is similar to its formation in literary languages. Through his research, synonymic chains and its types have been identified, which helps demonstrate that speakers of unwritten languages use synonyms contextually. Unwritten languages are currently threatened by extinction. Using the example of Shughni, the lecture will describe methods and tools to address this issue, such as preserving the language through different types of dictionaries.

AKHP Public Lecture, Bishkek: The Kyrgyz Self-Exploration Experience: Searching for Lost Tradition in Modern Contexts
Since time immemorial, small and large nations and cultures have explored their spirituality in a quest to find their place in the world. One’s spiritual path is not always clear, and without deep thought, the process can remain perfunctory. In ancient times, Kyrgyz people were keen to explore and discover their spiritual path, however, gradually, notions of this self-exploration have been replaced with formal traditions, imposed external laws and ideologies. Individuals have thus lost a sense of a real, vibrant and authentic spirituality. This lecture will invite participants to reflect on this change, and how there is a contradiction between the development of formal traditions and traditions related with the real life of people.

AKHP Public Lecture, Khorog: Challenges of a New Time: Solutions for Water Problems in GBAO
Climate change and population growth are important factors that are impacting the availability of water resources. A larger share of water resources is being used for agriculture and other purposes in rural areas. Before the 1990s, water in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) was regulated through collective farms and Oblast-level water management bodies. Today, each farmer has to independently handle farm irrigation. Year after year, improper irrigation of land erodes lands and degrades crops. This lecture will offer efficient solutions for water-related problems in GBAO.

AKHP Public Lecture, Almaty: Values, Identities and the Problem of Modernisation in Central Asia
This lecture will cover the modernisation of Central Asian countries, leveraging concepts from cognitive sociology (such as values, identities, institutes and types of social systems), and highlighting the importance of socio-cultural institutes in the modernisation of the state, society, economics and politics. It will also explore the degree of success of social modernisation projects. The lecturer sees modernisation as a transition to another level of socio-cultural complexity, which significantly exceeds the current condition of our society. At the current level (as determined by the socio-cultural theory of society), it is not sufficient to ensure adequate self-reflection on the condition of the society and possibilities for modernisation.
