PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE
Lecture at GBCC
THUBRON | DILLON | TYLER
Wednesday, January 14, 2004; 6.30pm
At the dead heart of Asia lies a land of sand and snow, where the Turkic, Muslim Uyghurs must accommodate increasing numbers of Han Chinese migrants. The PRC’s largest province arguably worries Beijing far more than headline-grabbing Tibet. Join three experts to find out why, as they discuss Xinjiang’s past, present and future: Colin Thubron (tbc) is a novelist and travel writer of books including The Lost Heart of Asia and Behind The Wall. Christian Tyler is a journalist and author of Wild West China: The Taming of Xinjiang (John Murray, August 2003); Dr Michael Dillon of Durham University is author of Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Far Northwest (RoutledgeCurzon, October 2003). Books will be available on the night, at a specially discounted price.
