World-leading Research

Research that takes place in the School is divided into three clusters. Each cluster represents an area of existing research strength and priority, and builds on the strong track record of language-based area studies and related multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches and combines and coordinates research activities from different disciplines, as well as straddling political boundaries in East Asia.
