Carefully follow the instruction and write five to six pages (1500 to 1800 words) on the following: Topic Since the publication of Edward Said’s Orientalism (1978), his critique of Orientalist knowledge and representations has gradually but deeply affected the way many scholars approach their research subjects in East Asian Studies. Clarify several features that Orientalism as defined by Said shares with Hegel’s historicism and the “stagist theory of history” (Chakrabarty) and discuss the ways in which such scholars as Sakai Naoki, Wang Hui, Dorinne Kondo, Teemu Ruscola, T. Fujitani, and Dipesh Chakrabarty have variously grappled with the possibility and/or impossibility of countering, resisting, or doing away with, the Orientalist and historicist mode of thought. Take two from the six scholars mentioned above and examine their argument in depth. In your view, do the two scholars offer effective way of getting out of the Orientalist and historicist discourse or do they reinforce the structure of thought they set out to question? Effectively quote key phrases and sentences from the texts to make your argument convincing and well-substantiated.
