Strokes to the biography of Galimjan Nigmati, an expert in literary studies


This article is dedicated to the formation of Galimjan Nigmati (1897-1940) as an expert in Literary Studies, a journalist and public figure. We outline several stages of this process: his studies in “Gosmaniya” and “Galiya” madrasahs in Ufa, his work in the Soviet mass media during the Civil War, and his studies in two higher educational establishments in Moscow: the Communist University of the Toilers of the East and the Moscow Institute of Journalism. As a result, at the age of 30, G. Nigmati established himself as a professional in the spheres of Literary Studies, journalism, and propaganda, which gave him an opportunity to play the leading role in these spheres in Kazan, the capital of the Tatar Autonomous Republic.
