Arabic Asia

With the rise of Asia in the 21st century, Arabia (or West Asia more generally) is becoming ever more engaged with the rest of Asia. The Arabia-Asia cluster is committed to research on the entwined intellectual, commercial, and social connections between any part of Arabia (and West Asia more generally) and any part of Asia through networks of ideas, commodities, religion, etc. This cluster embraces interdisciplinary and transregional approaches. Collectively, we seek to re-orient and rejuvenate Arabia together with a rising Asia.
