I've just been reading Said's Orientalism, in which he suggests that Area Studies is a modern synonym for Oriental Studies. He doesn't seem to be aware of the phrase being applied anywhere except in the east. Is this the original reference, which was later widened? --Doric Loon 15:21, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Cultural Studies[edit]

Is there a distinction between Area Studies and Cultural Studies?--Doric Loon 15:21, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Have you seen the article on cultural studies? I think it makes the distinction pretty clear, along with the potential overlap in uses of the phrase "cultural studies" to mean "area studies". -- Rbellin|Talk 16:54, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Ah, I should have checked that. So for enthusiasts it has its own flavours, but say in a Modern Languages department there's not much odds. Thanks. --Doric Loon 21:46, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Please note that I have created the Category:Area studies journals.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 03:19, 24 April 2006 (UTC)


Is there any existing effort to add a section on the historical development of "Area Studies" in any national context underway? The same for other categories (institutions/degree programs; funding agencies; criticism (of which the Said reference above is one), etc.)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Michaelwnau (talkcontribs) 11:20, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
