Description

Kazakhstan is the world's 9th largest country. Located in the heart of Eurasia, it's an important player in the contemporary political terrain due to its booming economy of oil and gas exports. It maintains strong political and social ties to Russia and its Soviet past, and Russian is still one of its official languages. Over the last millennium, Kazakhstan has been home to major historical events, and its nomadic population played an important role in forming the future of Europe. 

Led by an expert on the post-Soviet space, Nina Wieda, this course illuminates Kazakhstan's unique history, culture, people, and landmarks. Designed to inspire curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with an increased fascination for Kazakhstan and an understanding of its unique cultural and political landscape.
