Rahimjon Abdugafurov (2008 ISSRPL)
I am Rahimjon Usubjonovich Abdugafurov and I currently administer the Department for International Projects at Namangan Institute of Engineering and Economics, Namangan, Uzbekistan. I also direct the Language Center of my institute in addition to teaching English there. I previously worked at Namangan State University and held different posts. I earned my Master’s Degree in Education from Vanderbilt University, USA as a Muskie FSA Fellow, a program sponsored by the US Department of State. I have my five year higher education diploma from Namangan State University in Oriental Philology and received a qualification to teach Arabic and English. I spent my fourth year study of my latter education at Cairo University, Egypt, practicing my Arabic. My research interests include transmission of religious knowledge in Central Asia. I am particularly interested in studying methods and ways of delivering Islamic knowledge through conducting content analyses of textbooks used in religiously-affiliated institutions in Central Asia.
