Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to introduce the term orientalism, its meaning, its history and most important its future. I will start with a definition of the term itself with regard to the scholarly tradition in the West of studying Asian cultures, languages and societies. I will then continue with a recapitulation of the critique on orientalism and the following debate that has been going on since the beginning of the 1960s. After a few notes on the absence of such a debate in peripheral countries like Sweden, I will end the article by trying to pinpoint some aspects of orientalism for the future.
