What about Asia?

What about Asia?

By Josine Stremmelaar
Book Description

What about Asia? Revisiting Asian Studies brings together scholars from Asia, Europe and America to test the strength of a field of study which, considering the rise of Asia, should be gaining momentum. But is it? This is one of the many questions that the contributors to this volume ask themselves. In the past decade the use and legitimacy of area studies, and in particular Asian studies, have been passionately debated in conferences and academic journals. What about Asia? gives the current state of the debate on Asian studies by tackling the issue from a multiregional and interdisciplinary perspective.

De studie van Azië wordt met het toenemen an het belang van dat werelddeel teeds belangrijker. In de afgelopen ien jaar zijn zowel het gebruik van area studies als hun legitimiteit het onderwerp van debat geweest tijdens conferenties en in academische tijdschriften. Centraal in het debat stonden de conceptualisatie van Azië-studies en het soort kennis dat Azië-specialisten voortbrengen. Een keur aan antwoorden zijn gegeven maar het debat is nog lang niet ten einde. What about Asia? geeft de huidige stand van zaken in het debat omtrent Azië studies en tegelijkertijd blaast het het debat nieuw leven in door een multiregionale en interdisciplinaire benadering.
