Uyghur Papers


The Uyghurs are one of the ten most populous stateless nations in the world. While they have a long history of cultural accomplishments and political influence, they have remained marginal in international scholarship given their ambiguous position both in regional studies and in geopolitics. Nonetheless, given their contribution to global and regional, historical and cultural processes, there has developed a transnational community of scholars whose research is focused on the Uyghur people’s history, culture, and society.
