Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State

Justin Jacobs
Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State views modern Chinese political history from the perspective of Han officials who were tasked with governing Xinjiang. This region, inhabited by Uighurs, Kazaks, Hui, Mongols, Kirgiz, and Tajiks, is also the last significant “colony” of the former Qing empire to remain under continuous Chinese rule throughout the twentieth century. By foregrounding the responses of Chinese and other imperial elites to the growing threat of national determination across Eurasia, Justin...

Manipulating Elastic Waves in Topological Mechanical Metamaterials

Rajesh Chanusali
Due to the recent discovery of topological insulators in condensed matter physics, a new notion of topology has emerged in association with the intrinsic dispersion behavior of a structure. In this work, we have taken this notion of topology and have shown some novel wave manipulation capabilities in one- and two-dimensional (1D and 2D) elastic systems. In particular, we have taken four different type of elastic systems. First, a 1D elastic system made of a...

Familiar Strangers: A History of Muslims in Northwest China

Jonathan Lipman
The Chinese-speaking Muslims have for centuries been an inseparable but anomalous part of Chinese society—Sinophone yet incomprehensible, local yet outsiders, normal but different. Long regarded by the Chinese government as prone to violence, they have challenged fundamental Chinese conceptions of "self" and "other" and denied the totally transforming power of Chinese civilization by tenaciously maintaining connections with Central and West Asia as well as some cultural differences from their non-Muslim neighbors. Familiar Strangers narrates a...

Where Dragon Veins Meet

Stephen Whiteman
In 1702, the second emperor of the Qing dynasty ordered construction of a new summer palace in Rehe (now Chengde, Hebei) to support his annual tours north among the court’s Inner Mongolian allies. The Mountain Estate to Escape the Heat (Bishu Shanzhuang) was strategically located at the node of mountain “veins” through which the Qing empire’s geomantic energy was said to flow. At this site, from late spring through early autumn, the Kangxi emperor presided...

On the Margins of Tibet

Åshild Kolås & Monika Thowsen
The state of Tibetan culture within contemporary China is a highly politicized topic on which reliable information is rare. But what is Tibetan culture and how should it be developed or preserved? The Chinese authorities and the Tibetans in exile present conflicting views on almost every aspect of Tibetan cultural life. Åshild Kolås and Monika Thowsen have gathered an astounding array of data to quantify Tibetan cultural activities—involving Tibetan language, literature, visual arts, museums, performing...

Shifting Snowlines and Shorelines: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere and Implications for Washington State

Heidi A. Roop, Guillaume S. Mauger, Harriet Morgan, Amy K. Snover & Meade Krosby
In September 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. Both the ocean and the cryosphere — Earth’s frozen regions, including glaciers in Washington’s Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains and seasonal snowfall across the state — are showing signs of the negative impacts of human-caused climate change. This brief summarizes the Special Report and related consequences to Washington state, where the impacts...
