Kahar Barat was born in Yili in 1950. He earned his M.A. degree in Turkology from the Central University for Ethnic Minorities (Minzu University of China) in Beijing; he received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1993. He later taught at Yale University and other institutions.

In 2000, Kahar Barat published an annotated English edition of parts of "The Uygur-Turkic biography of the seventh-century Chinese Buddhist Pilgrim Xuanzang".

Barat's recent book, named Maymaq Uyghurlar ("Warped Uyghurs", in Uyghur) discusses the plight of Xinjiang's artists, who find themselves in the position of packaging the Uyghur culture for consumption by outside audiences.
