Top definition
Someone, usually Caucasian, but not always, who is very interested in the various cultures of Asia, commonly known as the Orient,
such as languages, writing systems, traditions & architecture.
The orientalist may study to an extreme to amass as much knowledge about Asia as they can.
Some people may call me an Orientalist, but I would refute that assumption.
