Abstract

The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region is located in north-western China and was the site through which traders traversed the Silk Road. Xinjiang has a diverse minority nationality (shaoshu minzu) population, and is home to the Uighurs, Huis, Mongolians, Kazakhs, Xibos, Kirgiz, Uzbeks, Manchus, Tatars, Tajiks, Daghurs and Russians, along with other minority groups who have recently been migrating to the region. In writing this paper, one of the central questions that can be posed is what does Xinjiang represent?
