Staff and researchers at the School of Asian Studies come from a variety of academic disciplines including history, politics, economics, sociology, linguistics, literature, philology, women’s studies and film.
This is reflected in their diverse range of research interests, and the range of countries, cultures and language in which they specialise.
Many of our staff members are involved in collaborative projects with other researchers both in and outside the school. Some of the shared themes include culture and film in contemporary East Asia, feminist criticism, Korean and Chinese diaspora studies and the construction of national / cultural identities.
Another area of research interest is language teaching theory and methods, which informs and supports our language-based programmes.
