Dr. Rahile Dawut, a renowned scholar from China’s Uighur ethnic minority group, was last seen by family and colleagues in December 2017. On August 29, 2018, SEM President Gregory Barz sent a letter to Terry Branstad, United States Ambassador to China, with a request for support in locating and protecting Dr. Dawut.

Dr. Dawut has published extensively in the fields of anthropology, folklore, and ethnomusicology. For a recent article on her work and disappearance, see “
