KASHGAR: CHINA’S ERASURE OF UYGHUR PRESENCE

This article appears in a magazine called The Funambulist and requires a subscription to view. From the website:

The eleventh issue of The Funambulist can be read as the third installment of a trilogy about the territorialities and architectures of colonialism and postcolonialism. It is dedicated to the precise and strategic political order behind the apparent disorder of debris and ruin in various geographical and historical contexts. The current situations of systematic destruction historically and currently experienced by Syrian and Palestinian populations provides a core to this issue to which are added accounts of the Uyghur, Tamil, and Black American struggles respectively in Xinjiang, Eelam, and the United States, as well as historical descriptions of survival bodies in Sarajevo and monument desecration in West Africa and the Carribeans.
