Orientalism

A term defined by Edward Said in 1976:

The use of the East as a mirror through which Westerners can both define their own selves and culture, and justify their political domination of the East.

A form of orientalism was present in the Roman Empire, but Said focuses on the period of modern colonial domination of the Middle East, the 19t hand 20th centuries
