    Abstract: Academics typically conceive of theory as a Western way of conceptual
    thinking or producing knowledge. In today’s academic context, nevertheless,
    theory is influential in the non-Western world as well, as many scholars outside
    of the West adopt a theoretical stance in the production of knowledge.
    Therefore, as scholars of East Asia, we must rethink its relation to theory.
    Theory has been discussed in the literature in connection with East Asia,
    but the place of theory, both in the study of East Asia and in the region itself,
    still remains obscure if not unstable. Here, my term “East Asia” refers to both
    geographical and academic sites; that is to say, the term refers to both the
    region of East Asia and the academic field of East Asian studies, especially in
    Western academia. Native East Asian scholars of any subject, and scholars
    who study East Asia, whether they are situated in a Western or non-Western
    academic context, all face similar challenges when they attempt to engage in
    theory. The perception of theoretical scholars in East Asia, from both the
    West and the East, is at best ambivalent, if not antagonistic. In opposition to
    this perception, this paper will illuminate the positive aspects of theory in and
    about East Asia. To this end, I propose the following guiding question about
    the relation between theory and East: what does “doing” theory mean when it
    comes to East Asia? Since the term “East Asia” risks being quickly associated
    or conflated with the colonialist conception of the Orient or the Other – namely,
    a mythic territory – a more helpful question might be: what does using theory
    mean for both scholars of East Asia and scholars in East Asia?
