This chapter examines in detail the politics of time in national incorporation processes. It tries to understand the “Democratic Reforms” in the Labrang region, and expands the notion of the “feminine hinge” between the static past and advancing national modernity in the People's Republic of China. The chapter also discusses the spatial politics of contextualization in order to consider gender historiography in post-Mao Labrang.

Keywords:   politics of time, national incorporation processes, Democratic Reforms, feminine hinge, national modernity, spatial politics, gender historiography
