In-the Library Talk: Soviet nomads searching for a new identity in the countries of Central Asia region.

Soviet nomads searching for a new identity in the countries of Central Asia region will take the form of a multimedia presentation from the Silk Route travelling with personal stories about Kyrgys shepherds, Uzbek cities, Kazakh skyscrapers and a Turkmen father of nation.

It will be presented by Zbyszek Pawlak – a cross-cultural consultant, university lecturer and author who worked and travelled for 20 years in the region of Central Asia helping with education and aid programmes as well as human development projects. He has always been interested in people’s lives and the character of their culture. His desire is to build understanding between people from the East and the West, which is missing especially in the present times of growing conflicts.
