Abstract

The racialisation and weaponisation of Covid-19 has raised many significant concerns and troubling issues that invite urgent action from researchers. Informed by socio-political history of modern China, women’s/gender studies, and the sociology and social anthropology of Islam, the author considers the intellectual, academic, and personal responsibility of Chinese studies scholars during the pandemic.
