    This project examines perceptions of the civic "Kazakhstani" national identity in the discourse of Kazakh- and Russian-language media of Kazakhstan and highlights the divergent views on the civic nationhood of Kazakhstan ...
  • Orynbayev, YerboL (2013-06)
    “The strategic plans of Nazarbayev University have been approved for the years of 2013-2020, and this event has heralded a new stage in the University's development. The strategy defines the main long-term objectives and ...
  • Tursynbek, I.; Zhakatayev, A.; Varol, H. A. (Nazarbayev University, 2013)
    In this work, we are presenting our latest developments in the design and implementation of the Nazarbayev University Robot Arm Complex.
  • Tursynbek, I.; Zhakatayev, A. T.; Varol, H. A. (Nazarbayev University, 2014)
    Robotic hands are being used in various areas such as industrial automation, medical robotics, and defense. In this work, we are presenting the Nazarbayev University Multigrasp Robot Hand with an integrated RGB-Depth ...
  • Morrison, Alexander Stephen (2014-05)
    This article explores the debates that preceded the Russian conquest of Tashkent in 1865. It argues that none of the explanations usually given for this – the ‘men on the spot’, ‘cotton hunger’, or the Great Game with ...
  • Solt, Frederick; Kim, Dongkyu; Lee, Kyu Young; Willardson, Spencer L; Kim, Seokdong (SAGE, 2014)
    Do neoliberal economic reforms in Latin American democracies mobilize citizens to overcome their collective action problems and protest? A recent addition to the scholarship on this crucial question of the relationship ...
  • James, A. P. (Nazarbayev University, 2013)
    The proposed processing unit called a memory cell possesses remarkable properties such scalability, and small footprint on chip. We demonstrate the hardware architectures based on memory cells for character recognition, ...
  • Adilbayeva, A.; Myngbay, A.; Adarichev, V. A. (Nazarbayev University, 2014)
    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is chronic inflammatory disease characterized by the development of hypercellular pannus tissue in the affected joints of patients. Pannus invasiveness and activation correlates with stronger ...
  • Kottegoda, I.R.M.; Bakenov, Zhumabay; Ikuta, H.; Uchimoto, Y.; Wakihara, M. (The Electrochemical Society, Inc., 2003-01)
    Safety is an indispensable feature for a battery particularly in large scale applications. In this respect, gel electrolytes are more attractive due to less possibility of electrolyte leakage and safer if abused. ...
  • Dashkova, V.; Segev, E.; Khromov, V.; Kolter, R.; Vorobjev, I.; Barteneva, N. S. (Nazarbayev University, 2014)
    Flow cytometry (FCM) is a promising tool in the field of aquatic phytoplankton ecology because it allows for multi-parameter assessment of the physiological state of individual cells in an algal population. It can help ...
  • Beznosko, D.; Batykhanov, A.; Beremkulov, T.; Duspayev, A.; Tailakov, A.; Yessenov, M. (Nazarbayev University, 2014)
    In the field of High Energy Physics today there are several open topics that are left. The Higgs boson has been recently discovered, neutrino oscillations are being studied, and some hints of the dark matter have been ...
  • Kesteloot, Kurt; Azizan, Azliyati; Whitman, Richard; Nevers, Meredith (Park Science is a research and resource management journal, 2013-03-13)
