Dear Colleagues!

Institute of History and Ethnology named after Sh.Sh. Ualikhanov invites you to take part in the Republican scientific and practical conference “Ulus Jochi and the uniqueness of statehood in the history of Kazakhstan,” which will be held on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the Ulus Jochi on April 5, 2024.

Being a proto-Kazakh state, Ulus Jochi was located on the vast territory of Desht-i Kipchak and united the clans and tribes of the modern Kazakh people into one state. The descendants of Jochi Khan laid the foundations of an independent state. The Ulus of Jochi became an independent state, and the Kazakhs began to consolidate into a nation within this state structure.

This year marks the 800th anniversary of Jochi Khan’s accession to the throne. It is known that Jochi is the ancestor of not only Kerey and Zhanibek, but also of all Kazakh khans in general. Here why it is very important and significant to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the great Ulus of Jochi widely and with dignity.

The purpose of the conference is to study the history of the Ulus of Jochi, the problems of its historical continuity with the Kazakh statehood from the standpoint of new approaches and methodological positions. When studying the Ulus of Jochi, studying individual historical figures, historical events and new facts, we are looking for an answer to the question of how fully the spiritual-cultural and political-historical continuity with the Kazakh Khanate is revealed.

At the conference it is planned to discuss issues in the following areas:

• Study of new data related to the history of Ulus Jochi;

• New conceptual and methodological approaches to the content of the history of the Ulus of Jochi;

• Recent achievements of historiography as a data science in the study of the history of Kazakhstan;

• The place and activities of historical figures in the history of Ulus Jochi;

• Problems of succession of the Golden Horde and the Kazakh Khanate;

• Current problems in researching the history of the Kazakh Khanate.

The following people are invited to participate in the conference: historians, scientists from research institutes, representatives of higher educational institutions, teaching staff, government bodies, doctoral students, young scientists, and media representatives.
