A Colonial Muslim History of Qing Central Asia: Revisiting Sayr¿m¿'s T¿r¿kh-i ¿am¿d¿

The T¿r¿kh-i ¿am¿d¿ of Mullah M¿sa Sayr¿m¿ (1836-1917) is celebrated as a monument of Uyghur literature and the preeminent Muslim history of nineteenth-century Xinjiang (East Turkestan). Sayr¿m¿'s work is also layered, polyvocal text, and one that bears recontextualization and rereading through different analytical approaches. This talk will explore the T¿r¿kh-i ¿am¿d¿ both 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.
