My question for this short paper is simple: as scholars involved in Asian Studies should it not be an imperative that we value work produced in Asian languages on an equal footing with that being written in English? Should it not furthermore be a prerequisite for Asian Studies scholars working in English language institutions that they actively produce work in the Asian languages they have studied?
