The UCLA Program on Central Asia is pleased to announce that it will be holding a conference on language and identity in Central Asia on May 4-5, 2012. Graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and junior faculty will take part in a two-day workshop to present and discuss their work in this area. These participants will be joining a group of four invited established scholars in the field and faculty discussants. Confirmed invited scholars are Professors Azade-Ayse Rorlich of the University of Southern California, Gardner Bovingdon of Indiana University, and Harsha Ram of UC Berkeley.

The conference is organized along four axes of interaction between Central Asia and other parts of the world:
contact with the Islamic Middle East and Ottoman world
contact with the Russian Empire and its successor states
internal contact among populations of Central Asia
contacts with China and East Asia.

This conference is sponsored by the UCLA Program on Central Asia and the UCLA Slavic Department, in cooperation with the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies.
