Abstract 講座內容:
Contemporary Henan Mongol autonomous county in Qinghai province is a small Mongol enclave located within the Tibetan cultural area of Amdo at the Sino-Tibetan borderlands. The arrival of the first Mongol settlers was in the 13th century, and with the establishment of the Khoshut authority over the Kokonor region under Gushri Khan, the Mongols gained power all over the region until 1723. By then, the Kokonor region came under the administration of the Qing court but under the power of local Tibetan rulers – except the area of the Hequ grassland which remained in the hands of the Mongols until the incorporation into the modern Chinese state in 1954.

Due to the long-term mutual contacts between Tibetans and Mongols - a milieu was created in which unique local customs, language patterns, and social communities have emerged; the origins of which lie in encounters between Tibetan and Mongol culture that share certain features to form a new distinct culture. With the twentieth century, the underlying Mongolness was no longer assumed but began to be reaffirmed, so hyphenation began to emerge among groups in order to emphasize their Mongolness to others. Since the 1980s, the Henan Mongols are beneficiaries of the party state’s civilising projects to retain their distinct identity by re-inventing their “Mongolness.” Hence, the speaker is pursuing the question of the identity construction of the people of contemporary Henan County by looking at the multiple factors influencing their Mongolness. The findings are based on information she has collected during various long-term stays and research trips in Henan County since the late 1990s, which were supplemented by cross-checking printed sources, such as official records, local history materials and inner-party materials in Tibetan and Chinese.
