Theo D'haen Abstract



Theo D'haen

Professor, University of Leuven (Belgium)


The economic rise, first of Japan and Korea, then, even stronger, China, and in its wake perhaps soon much of South and South-East Asia, has brought about a major geopolitical recalibration from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In his 1998 ReOrient, Andre? Gunder Frank argued that this in fact merely marks a return to the pre-1800 situation, when China likewise was at the center of the world economy. Consequently, he asks Western scholars to look at the world with different eyes than their customarily Eurocentric ones. In my talk I will consider what the implications of such a shift might be for the discipline of comparative literature.
