IIAS Lunch Lecture

Mu Qian (SOAS, University of London) did fieldwork in Northwestern China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region for his PhD research on music and meaning in Uyghur Sufism. Sufism has played an important role in the history of Islamisation of Xinjiang, and is today an important part of the identities of some Uyghur people. Sounded practices derived from Sufi traditions still take place among the pious locals, against governmental ban. Mu will talk about his research and show some rare footages from his fieldwork.
