ACC’s Monday Table Topics and One IU’s Readings Race Series present “Race, ethnic group, nation? Understanding intergroup tensions in contemporary Xinjiang”
by Professor Gardner Bovingdon
Date: Monday, October 25, 2010
Time: 12 – 1 p.m.
Venue: Asian Culture Center, 807 E. 10th Street
Description: There is no doubt that the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, located in China’s northwestern corner, remains contentious. Nearly 200 people were killed there in the summer of 2009 in some of the worst violence in decades. Beijing claims Xinjiang has been threatened by terrorism for more than a decade, while Uyghur activists argue that the region’s instability stems from human rights abuses. How can we make sense of the events and the competing claims?
Gardner Bovingdon is an Associate Professor at Indiana University with academic appointments in Central Eurasian Studies, East Asian Languages and Cultures, and Political Science.
Monday Table Topics is a monthly discussion and luncheon with scholars at the Asian Culture Center. The roundtable serves as one of the many informal outlets for scholars to talk about topics that are related to Asian cultures, history, arts, education, politics, government, and business. Light lunch is on us. For more info, please contact Lanita Gregory at email@example.com or call (812) 856-5361.
