LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Becoming 'Inner Kirghiz': Qianlong Emperor’s Policy Toward Five Tribes in Qing Xinjiang

Jaymin Kim, Assistant Professor of History, University of St. Thomas
Tuesday, February 2, 2021
12:00-1:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Using hundreds of Manchu-language archival materials from the Qianlong period, this talk will focus on the Kirghiz, who have largely been overlooked in scholarship on Qing Xinjiang. More specifically, it will argue that there was a group of people Dr. Kim calls "inner Kirghiz" who were firmly incorporated into Qing Xinjiang, thereby bridging the Qing world and the Central Asian world. The case of the inner Kirghiz highlights the blurred boundary between Qing and "foreign" as well as the plurality of Qing Xinjiang society.

Jaymin Kim is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota. He received his PhD in history from the University of Michigan in 2018 and has been a LRCCS Center Associate since then.
