My research colleagues and I have attempted in recent years to present new views of the classical versus vernacular dichotomy that are especially central to the new historiography of India.  Based on recent Indian/South Asian findings, we examined alternative frameworks for understanding East Asian languages between 1000 and 1919.  Using new sources, making new connections, and reexamining old assumptions, we have asked whether and why East Asian languages should be analyzed in light of a Eurocentric dichotomy.  This discussion encouraged us to explore whether European modernity is an appropriate standard at all for East Asia.  Individually and collectively, we have sought to establish linkages between societies without making a priori assumptions about the countries’ internal structures or the genealogy of their connections.

Recent scholarship has presented a strong challenge to earlier models for understanding early modern languages in East Asia.  Following the lead of Sheldon Pollock, who described the spread of Sanskrit in ways often diametrically opposed to the history of Latin, Peter Kornicki, Wang Sixiang, John Phan, Haruo Shirane, Daniel Trambaiolo, Atsuko Ueda, Shang Wei, and myself present essays in this volume that in aggregate challenge accepted distinctions between classical and vernacular languages in East Asia.  I shall attempt to present in this lecture the elements of a new conceptual framework that recognizes that in East Asia the literary and vernacular registers historically interacted and influenced each other as part of a unified, if hybrid, language system that was mastered by Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese according to their own unique linguistic resources.
