Ms. R Veena's PhD Seminar (1) which is scheduled on 12th August 2016 at 1:30 P M at HSB 333. The talk is titled Harmonizing the Uyghurs of Xinjiang: A Study on China’s Ethnic Management .
This seminar presentation endeavours to comprehend China’s ethnic management in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) by examining the dialectics of multiculturalism vs. Chinese exceptionalism; it surveys the seminal works --critiquing the conceptual, institutional and operational processes of China’s engagement in its multi-ethnic space. There are three salient factors that are examined in this endeavour : a) The post-colonial critique of mainstream multiculturalism, b) The concept and salience of Confucian Harmony and Harmonization, and c) Reviewing China’s ‘harmonization’ program of Uyghurs.
