The interplay between governmentality, biopolitics and the state manifests itself discursively and materially within the realm of sovereignty over territory and at the level of the population. This thesis is specifically concerned with the relational contexts of the People's Republic of China during the 'War on Terror.' Hence, this thesis engages how the state discursively produces what and how 'Uyghur' is relationally dependent on transforming notions of state sovereignty during the 'War on Terror.' Accordingly, the discursivity of 'Uyghur' allows for dialectic production by the state and the ontological rationalization of governmental practice that produces difference.
