We are having a second run of our Uyghur History Class!
- Start date: June 24th, 2023
- Class time: Saturdays, 11 am - 1 pm ET
- Run time: 10 weeks
- Primary language: English
- Discussion-based classes on weekly readings, requiring active participation
- Classes will be held over Zoom
- Classes will not be recorded, but a reading list will be available on our website
Applications close on June 17th, or when the class size has been reached.
Our team has decided to continue with a seminar structure, which will feature readings and moderated discussions. The interactive curriculum, also featuring guest speakers, will take from both English and Uyghur sources and may require some understanding of both, although required readings will be primarily in English. The material will span from ancient to present day Uyghur history. Our goal is to actively and critically engage with academic works to enrich our understanding of Uyghur history through thoughtful, respectful discussion and inquiries. We would like to reiterate that this will be a seminar style class, NOT lecture based, as we feel this structure best facilitates the goals of this course.
Certificate of completion will be issued to all those who participate in at least 8 weeks of the course.
The class size will be limited to about 25 students due to the format of the classes, so please submit your application form as soon as possible. Priority will be given to early applicants and Tarim Network followers.
