Introducing Sultan (Uyghurche ismim: Sultanqiz), 24, a Master of Central Asian Studies student at Humboldt University of Berlin!
1. How would you describe the city you live in?
Berlin is a very “colorful“, multicultural and diverse city. Each district represents a new world and historical traces can be seen in all corners.
2. How have you spent the last year?
I spent a long time with an Uyghur family in Almaty to work on resources for my bachelor thesis “The Atu tragedy of 1918 and the Uyghurs of Kazakhstan“. My professor and I have published a book on the same subject in German called “The Uyghur Tragedy“
3. What two subjects do you love to talk about?
Generally, I love talking about Central Asia, especially about Uyghur history and literature.
