Area Studies List

This is a article contains a list of area studies. Area studies are interdisciplinary fields of research which focus upon specific geographical locations and peoples. While area studies stretch across a range of topics, I am including it here on my website to focus on history. More specifically, to focus on the history of these studies. This list is subject to being updated.

Articles which contain a list of people who have studied a particular study may sometimes be found by clicking the number they are after. The century or centuries included after a study represent when that study was founded/developed. Dates are based either on a recognized “founder” of a study or the earliest names on the list of scholars for a study.
