However, many Hui and other believe that the label is appropriate because the Hui have a history and culture that would not be such without their being Muslim, and thus setting them apart from other Chinese groups.

 Session 25   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This panel examines the Chinese Muslims (Hui) as modernity and the modern state affected the construction of their individual and collective identities, especially through the process of history-making.
This paper shows how Chinese Muslim intellectuals responded to the challenge of nationalist discourse among the Chinese intelligentsia during the first half of the 20th century (1904–1940s) by constructing their own history as a "national minority" history.
I argue that these intellectuals were confronted with a twofold problem: on the one hand, they had to maintain their own distinct identity as Hui, and on the other, they had to avoid excluding themselves from the broad history of the Chinese Nation, which was being written at the same time.
