This unit examines the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of studying Asia, including the question 'what is Asia?' The unit examines key Asia-centred approaches to the field, including the critique of Western-centred forms of knowledge. From that basis, students engage critically with significant bodies of literature in different disciplines as the starting point for designing and carry out their own research projects in the field.
