This dissertation research investigates literature on Islam in modern China, particularly since the beginning of the reform and opening period. As part of the research project “The Modern Religious Bookshelf: Canons, Concepts and Communities”, the study focuses on the organization of literature, paying attention to actors and networks engaged in literary practices like classification, publication and circulation.. In short, the research scrutinizes what kind of knowledge on Islam was produced and how this knowledge became manifest in the prints filling Chinese bookshelves.
