This division aims to re-examine the methods of comprehending the whole world by opening up new horizons in historical and cultural studies, adopting a cross-regional perspective, and by shedding light on the geographical areas marginalized in conventional history and area studies which have traditionally adopted longitudinal approaches. This education and research is also geared to discovering pathways to the solutions of current regional conflicts by uncovering the process of formation, development, succession and changes of regional histories and cultures, taking into account issues of ethnic sentiments and cultural identity underpin those conflicts.
