Research overview

FAMES research is unified by a commitment to approaching the study of Asia and North Africa through indigenous languages, in written and oral form, creating an emphasis on languages, literatures and cultures, both past and present. Within this framework our research shows great variety from the disciplinary and geographic perspectives. Historians, anthropologists, linguists and literature specialists work alongside each other to generate a rich and diverse research environment looking at China, Japan, South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.
