Completion of field work in Huanglong, and initial preparation for publication. (12 months)

The project is to complete a study of religious change, ethnic relations and the state in mountainous west China. Our focus is an old pilgrimage site called Huanglong, Yellow Dragon, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1992. Through an ethnographic history, we examine the contestation over the site and its interpretation among pilgrims of different religious faiths and ethnicities, and recently tourists, tracing shifts in cultural meanings and definitions of self; and we study the state’s efforts to manage religion and ethnicity, and balance capitalism, tourism, environmental management. We are applying for a final two months in the field--including off season visits--and to begin the drafting of our book.
