Asia on Its Own Terms: Towards New Terminology and Narratives for Research in Asian Studies


Tel-Aviv University’s Asia on Its Own Terms Program invites students at MA and PhD levels, who are intrigued by the unique opportunity to be part of an exclusive initiative for a fascinating academic journey to constitute a world leading center, specializing in the diverse facets of China, India, Japan and Korea, and the terminologies they can offer to academic discourse in the age of globalization.


In recent years there is a growing scholarly interest in transitional processes in East and South Asian countries. Nonetheless, so far there have been relatively few attempts of an integrated and comparative study of these regions by venturing across geographical, political, and linguistic boundaries. The Asia on Its Own Terms program aims to readdress this shortcoming by facilitating interdisciplinary and cross-regional dialogues between scholars and students specializing in China, India and Japan. It is “border-crossing” both in cutting across parochial regionalism and artificial borders, and in cutting across disciplines.
