Michael Brose’s research interests span the late-imperial period in Chinese history down to the present. His first area of interest is in the social and political history of Mongol-era China, especially the role of non-Chinese personnel who were moved into China as a result of the Mongol conquest. His first book, Subjects and Masters: Uyghurs in the Mongol Empire, dealt with one subset of that large group of people. He continues to work on this topic. Michael’s second research area is on the history and contemporary role of Chinese Muslims in southwestern China, especially Yunnan Province.
Michael’s teaching includes courses on Chinese and Japanese history, history of the Mongol Empire, the history and contemporary expression of religions in China, and history of borderlands/frontiers.
