On September 28, 2022 at 11.00 a.m. The Ch.Ch. Valikhanov Institute of history and ethnology of the Committee of Science of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with K. Zhubanov Aktobe Regional University, is holding an international scientific and practical conference on «The Kazakh steppe under Russian vassalage: the history and fate of the steppe elite».

The steppe elite as a phenomenon in the history of the Great Steppe has repeatedly become the object of scientific knowledge, but these studies were of a discrete nature, hence the interest in the scientific understanding of this phenomenon. Steppe rulers have always been viewed through the prism of any ideologies, which complicated the perception of the historical reality of a particular era.

Khans, sultans, batyrs and other representatives of the steppe elite, who at different times determined the general course of historical processes, should be represented as widely as possible in the scientific literature. Their personalities, character, significance for a certain historical epoch need objective coverage.

Holding International scientific and practical conferences will help to reveal the main points of view of the participants, highlight previously unknown facts and materials, as well as form a unified idea and concept on this problem. The identification of problematic points of view will allow us to better understand and reconstruct the course of the most important historical events and processes, such as, for example, the entry of Kazakhstan into the Russian Empire, the general outline of national movements and uprisings, to rethink the significance of a number of famous personalities.

During the conference, it is planned to discuss problems in the following areas:

1. Conceptual and methodological approaches to the study of the role of personality in history.

2. Topical issues of the history of Kazakhstan of modern times.

3. Steppe elite in oral folk art.

4. External contours of the relationship of the rulers of the Junior Zhuz.

5. The role of the steppe elite in the socio-economic transformations (modernization) of the region.

Historians, scientists of research institutes, representatives of higher educational institutions, teaching staff, public authorities, doctoral students, young scientists, media representatives are invited to participate in the International scientific and practical conference “The Kazakh steppe under Russian vassalage: the history and fate of the steppe elite”.
