Central Asia in World Literature
with Hamid Ismailov

Uzbek-British writer and journalist Hamid Ismailov’s work spans the end of the Soviet period and the entry of the former Soviet republics into a globalized, post-Cold War world. In this talk, Ismailov will speak about these themes in his own work, which tracks Central Asia’s role in a changing global political and literary scene. The talk will also touch on Central Asia’s place in Soviet and post-Soviet literature, as well as on the multilingual nature of Ismailov’s writing, which spans Uzbek, Russian, and English.
