讲座介绍:What is the relationship between ethnic identity and urban space in China today?  How is urbanization in China impacting ethnic minority groups?  How is minority identity being re-shaped by cities?  Is there a place in China for ‘ethni-cities’?  This talk will explore these questions by pursuing two related avenues of inquiry.  First, I will present recent research on the ‘ethnicization’ of cities in Guizhou Province: the deliberate transformation of urban space into ethnically-themed space.  Second, I will discuss the urbanization of ethnic tourism in Guizhou: that is, the extension of an urban aesthetic to the practice and development of tourism in Guizhou’s ethnic countryside.  In both cases, questions are raised about the prospects for ethnic cultural development in the context of a rapidly urbanizing China.
