Research Topic

The Qing and Ottoman Empires: The Formation of Muslim Networks in Search of Modernization

I have studied the modern history of Sinophone Muslims, historically called “Hui” Muslims and are roughly equivalent to the Hui ethnic group in contemporary China. From the late nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, Chinese and Ottoman bureaucrats, intellectuals, and revolutionaries visited each other’s countries to inspect modernization policies. This project examines how the Muslim networks between Hui Muslims and the Ottoman Empire influenced the two countries’ politics, economy, society, military, and diplomacy, as well as international affairs such as the Xinjiang problem and the Sino-Japanese War. It aims to depict the modernization of the Qing and Ottoman empires, not as a result of “westernization” imposed by the Great Powers, but as a process of interactive communications, and to illuminate the rich relationships between East Asia and the Islamic world.
