Consortium for the Study of the Asias

The Consortium for the Study of the Asias (CSA) begins from the premise that the interactions among the various regions of Asia (Western, Central, East, South, Southeast), as well as with the rest of the world, are critical to the scholarly enterprise. CSA engages methodological and theoretical issues common to scholars of literature, culture, and the social sciences globally, to explore themes such as race and ethnicity, urbanization and migration, modernity and modernism, transnationalism and globalization, representation and language.

It is with these complex processes and notions in mind—processes and notions that transcend traditional categories of area, region, and nation-state, but also traditional demarcations of academic fields and disciplines—that CSA approaches Asian Studies.
