Brief description

The project “Interaction of Turkish Languages and Cultures in Post-Soviet Kazakhstan” is a comprehensive pilot study on the current situation of the Turkish minorities in Kazakhstan. It examines whether, to what extent and in which domains the representatives of the individual ethnic groups use their mother tongue, which religious and cultural traditions have been preserved and where contact with other ethnic groups or the dominance of Kazakh has led to a change in lifestyle, language and self-identification.

The cooperation with Kazakh scientists from various disciplines and the integration of Kazakh and German students of Turkology into the data collection will make it possible, in addition to this sociolinguistic focus, to evaluate archive material relating to the history of settlement and to create exemplary, digitized text corpora. For this purpose, voice recordings (videos) of the various Turkish minority languages will be produced, electronically analysed and annotated and made available online. The collected material will be made available to international experts (Turkology, history, cultural anthropology, literary studies) as well as to the Kazakh public and students of Kazakhstan’s universities. The findings from this project will be incorporated into the curriculum of Turkology courses at Kazakh universities. The database with the sociological data is already available online.
