International online conference dedicated to Kazakh poets takes place online
An international round table “Pride of the Nation” was held to honor the 30th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s Independence, 175th anniversary of Zhambyl Zhabayev and 90th anniversary of Mukagali Makatayev. According to the event participants, the works of the great Kazakh poets and writers show the national and cultural identity of Kazakh people to the world, as well as reflect the color, tell about the lifestyle and allow feeling the real spirit of the nation. Representatives of the cultural and scientific community of Kazakhstan and Sweden took part in the meeting held online. The participants agreed on the fact that the literature is a perfect way to discover the spiritual code of the nation.
“We have preserved our customs and traditions. We can show the world our national identity. We are a sovereign state and make our spiritual contribution to the development of humanity. How? Thanks to our literature and history. Even if our conference is held online, it is like opening a “Window to Europe”. That is, we must show the world our identity and mentality,” said Ualikhan Kalizhanov, PhD in Philology, researcher.
