About the Event
The Tārīkh-i Hamīdī of Mullah Mūsa Sayrāmī (1836–1917) is celebrated as a monument of Uyghur literature and the preeminent Muslim history of nineteenth-century Xinjiang (East Turkestan). Sayrāmī’s work is also multilayered, polyvocal text, and one that bears recontextualization and rereading through different analytical approaches. This talk explores the Tārīkh-i Hamīdī in terms of its interaction with other Muslim and Chinese sources and as a colonial, transcultural text that advances insightful observations of Chinese power and new theories about its workings.
The invited speaker is Eric Schluessel, Associate professor of history and international affairs at the George
Washington University in Washington DC, USA.
