Is it possible to join a party or faction and retain a semblance of independence? Eichhorn, who is considered the founder of Higher Criticism with his seminal work Einleitung in das Alte Testament , was a Professor of Oriental languages at the University of Jena, where he first published on the history of Islam and Arabic literature. In contrast, it shows us that Europe as host culture is constantly challenged and re-defined by the ethnic differences it bears within itself, as the case of the Jewish minority challenge to European culture and thought shows. Both count as the most influential Jewish philosophers of the modern era after Mendelssohn. This project would not have been completed, if it were not for the collegial and supportive atmosphere among the graduate student community in the English Department. Ethnicity might play a role, but as Said came to acknowledge, the boundary crossings and strategic identities that Auerbach adopts are more important than a singular preference for an ethnic background.

Failure to modernize adequately was predicated on the inability to imitate the West. The Tibetans are required to play their part in a Beijing-based script.
The scripted role for Tibetans is to be forever on the way to modernity, without ever reaching their goal of achieving a level of civilization equivalent to the urban Chinese who come to Lhasa as tourists. This is an unresolved tension. If Tibetans adopt Chinese ways and language, thus improving their human quality in Chinese eyes, and becoming more civilized and employable in Chinese enterprises, they lose their exotic appeal, and will compete with politically reliable Han Chinese immigrants for hospitality industry jobs.
So Tibetans must forever be in between, striving but not yet succeeding in becoming more modern, in recognizably Chinese ways. This is the paradox: Tibetans are not permitted to turn their backs on Chinese modernity, but they may not succeed either. They cannot fail but they cannot win. The agenda of this logo is that Tibet must be different, but not too different. The academic attacks on the leftist variety of orientalism were sealed in a number of other works which sought to demonstrate the capitalist vitality of Middle Eastern societies in early modern times.
In Marx and the End of Orientalism , Bryan Turner attempts to revalidate Marxist analysis and the mode-of-production approach to Middle East studies by repudiating the Asiatic mode of production thesis altogether and presenting a more tenable historical and theoretical alternative. An overarching treatment of the subject matter from a much broader perspective is Halil Inalcik's Economic and Social History of the Ottoman Empire: — One enduring debate asks whether Eastern Europe's indigenous social relations or its trade relations explain its economic underdevelopment over the last years Chirot Despite its economic trajectory, East European art, music, architecture, and literature have thrived, leading some to identify modernity's disarticulation as a regional distinction Wandycz These accomplishments lead others to argue that Europe itself should be understood as much from its east and especially its center as from its west Sayer Eastern European Studies has not only been cultivated in the West.
For instance, the Soviet Union had its own complement of area studies. Eastern Europe was particularly important in this array given the role post-World War II Eastern Europe played, until perestroika , as a cordon sanitaire. Within Eastern Europe, however, the region's area study is not well developed; the region is rarely articulated as a category of cultural imagination. East European diversity has invited much finer breakdowns.
Most significantly, the region's imperial heritage is diverse—with the Ottoman, Habsburg, Russian, and Prussian empires shaping the region's long nineteenth century, with enduring effect. Some resist Cold War categories altogether and argue that East Central Europe's boundaries should move into Soviet space, to include the lands of the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Magosci There is no simple cumulation of scholarly competencies in Eastern European Studies.
There has been no regionally hegemonic language, like Russian was in the Soviet Union. Depending on the boundaries one invokes, and the time one imagines, different languages have been more and less dominant and numerous. For example, in , Germans, Poles, and Ukrainians were the largest ethno-linguistic groups in Magosci's , pp.
There also is no principal religious tradition in Eastern Europe, whose status Islam occupies in the definition of Middle Eastern and North African studies.
Islamic and Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant Christian religions dominate various parts of the regional landscape. Judaism was demographically and culturally significant before the Holocaust, and even after genocide, Judaism remains critical to understanding the region's cultural politics. Thus, while Eastern Europe is itself a profoundly important cultural category, it is not based on the region's cultural homogeneity.
Eastern European Studies is, however, profoundly shaped by the culture of nations and nationalism.
