|Full Title||Learning Places: The Afterlives of Area Studies|
|Publisher||Duke University Press Books|

Under globalization, the project of area studies and its relationship to the fields of cultural, ethnic, and gender studies has grown more complex and more in need of the rigorous reexamination that this volume and its distinguished contributors undertake. In the aftermath of World War II, area studies were created in large part to supply information on potential enemies of the United States. The essays in Learning Places argue, however, that the postâCold War era has seen these programs largely degenerate into little more than public relations firms for the areas they research.
