I very much appreciate the invitation from the Director of Asian Studies, Steven Lindquist.
Here is what I will be talking about:
This presentation explores the history of the Qur’an in China. I offer a brief overview of the history of Muslims in China in order to situate material and textual manifestations of the Qur’an in Chinese society. We conclude with an examination of Chinese Muslim translational choices in the first rendering of the Qur’an in Chinese.
