Department: History

Research Question
This project investigates how and why Chinese Muslim citizens of this unique borderlands province in Southwestern China are thriving in their twin identities as faithful Muslims and good citizens.

Counters popular discourses and assumptions of Chinese state opposition to the practice of religion, especially Islam.

Methods Used
Oral interviews, site visits to mosques and Chinese Muslim communities, archival research.

The Chinese Muslim community in Yunnan Province has a lively community sense that is anchored in religious, social and cultural values and practices. That sense of community as a distinct religious group does not interfere with citizenship expectations and practices as members of the Chinese state.
