Description: 
This paper will touch on the role of academic English in Asian Studies, the use and overuse of technical language and jargon, the role of the academic in a world of new information and technologies, and the need for the academy to reach out beyond our own self imposed borders. I cannot provide answers to the questions such discussions raise, but hope that the dialogue thus created will prove fruitful for the discipline of Asian Studies.
