Abstract 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. Table of contents: What about Asia? Revisiting Asian Studies (Josine Stremmelaar and Paul van der Velde); Asian Studies and the Discourse of the Human Sciences (Gananath Obeyesekere); Area Studies in a Changing World (Peter van der Veer); Asia as a Form of Knowledge: of Analyses, (Re)Production, and Consumption (Shamsul A.B.); 'A Little Knowledge is a Useful Thing': Paradoxes in the Asian Studies Experience in Australia (Robert Cribb); The Ebb and Flow of ASEM Studies (Yeo Lay Hwee); Re-orienting Asian Studies (Paul van der Velde).
