Collection : De l'Orient à l'Occident

This collection aims to reflect upon the diverse and complex nature of Asian societies and their influence on other societies. Modern societies are constantly influencing each other in a context of globalisation whilst experiencing their own changes, their own splits, conflicts and fragmentation, which in turn affect the rest of the world. Today, humanities and social sciences are part of a process in which knowledge in humanities and social sciences is circulated which produces hybridisation and intermixing between Asia and other parts of the world. Asia can no longer be thought of as a cultural area based on paradigms established in Western humanities and social sciences. There is a need, therefore, for the development of an interdisciplinary reflection based on national and international research experience in Asian societies in dialogue with other societal contexts.
