Skiednis


The School of Oriental Studies was founded in 1916 by 2 Finsbury Circus, Londen, the then premises of the London Institution. The school received its royal charter on 5 juny 1916 and admitted its first students on 18 jannewaris 1917. The school was formally inaugurated a month later on 23 febrewaris 1917 by King George V. Among those in attendance were Earl Curzon of Kedleston, formerlyViceroy of India, and other cabinet officials.

The school’s founding mission was to advance British scholarship, science and commerce in Africa and Asia and to provide London University with a rival to the famous Oriental schools of Berlin, Petrograd and Paris. The school immediately became integral in training British administrators, colonial officials and spies for overseas postings across the British Empire. Africa was added to the school’s name in 1938.

For sometime in the mid-1930s, prior to moving to its current location at Thornhaugh Street, Bloomsbury, the school was located at Vandon House, Vandon Street, London SW1, with the library located at Clarence House. Its move to new premises in Bloomsbury was held up by delays in construction and the half-completed building took a hit during the Blitz in September 1940. With the onset of the Second World War, many University of London colleges were evacuated from London in 1939 and billeted on universities all over the provinces. The School was, on the Government’s advice, transferred to Christ’s College, Cambridge.

Yn 1940, when it became apparent that a return to London was possible, the school returned to the city and was housed for some months in eleven rooms at Broadway Court, 8 Broadway, London SW1. Yn 1942, the War Office joined with the school’s Japanese department to help alleviate the shortage in Japanese linguists. State scholarships were offered to select grammar and public school boys to train as military translators and intelligence officers. Lodged at Dulwich College in south London, the students became affectionately known as the Dulwich boys.

Bletchley Park, the headquarters of the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), was concerned about the slow pace of the SOAS, so they started their own Japanese-language courses at Bedford in February 1942. The courses were directed by army cryptographer, Col. John Tiltman, and retired Royal Navy officer, Capt. Oswald Tuck.

In recognition of SOAS’s role during the war, de 1946 Scarborough Commission (offisjeel de “Commission of Enquiry into the Facilities for Oriental, Slavonic, East European and African Studies”) report recommended a major expansion in provision for the study of Asia and the school benefited greatly from the subsequent largesse. The SOAS School of Law was established in 1947 with Professor Vesey-Fitzgerald as its first head. Growth however was curtailed by following years of economic austerity, and upon Sir Cyril Philips assuming the directorship in 1956, the school was in a vulnerable state. Over his twenty-year stewardship, Phillips transformed the school, raising funds and broadening the school’s remit.

A college of the University of London, the School’s fields include Law, Sosjale wittenskip, Humanities and Languages with special reference to Asia and Africa. The SOAS Library, located in the Philips Building is the UK’s national resource for materials relating to Asia and Africa and is the largest of its kind in the world.The school has grown considerably over the past thirty years, from fewer than 1,000 students in the 1970s to more than 6,000 students today, nearly half of them postgraduates. SOAS is partnered with the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO) in Paris which is often considered the French equivalent of SOAS.

Yn 2011, the Privy Council approved changes to the school’s charter allowing it to award degrees in its own name, following the trend set by fellow colleges the London School of Economics, University College London and King’s College London. All new students registered from September 2013 will qualify for a SOAS, University of London award.

Yn 2012 a new visual identity for SOAS was launched to be used in print, digital media and around the campus. The SOAS tree symbol, first implemented in 1989, was redrawn and recoloured in gold, with the new symbol incorporating the leaves of ten trees, including the English Oak representing England; the Bodhi, Coral Bark Maple, Teak representing Asia; the Mountain Acacia, African Pear, Lasiodiscus representing Africa; and the Date Palm, Pomegranate and Ghaf representing the Middle East.
