Asian Studies Research Group

Founded in 2015, the Asian Studies Research Group helps scholars from across our University to meet together to advance the contemporary and historical study of Asia’s diverse societies and environments. 

The group comprises people who are fascinated by different parts of Asia and recognise that our understanding of this vast continent can be deepened through inter-disciplinary and cross-case study comparisons.

It provides a platform for conversations and collaborations between Asian Studies researchers in the Schools of Modern Languages (SML), History, Classics and Archaeology (HCA), Geography, Politics and Sociology (GPS), and Architecture, Planning and Landscape (APL) - and beyond.
