This paper is an English version of the author’s farewell lecture held on the 20th of July, 2016, in the old lecture hall (“Alte Aula”) of Heidelberg University. It has been translated from the printed German text ‘Nepal in der Welt’ which appeared in 2017. A survey of Nepal and Nepal studies from precolonial times until present, the lecture sheds light on quite a range of topics and raises issues that are relevant for area studies just as well as for many other academic disciplines. Axel Michaels’ main concern in all this is to discuss ways of understanding the ‘other’. Simultaneously, true to the format of a farewell lecture, the paper contains some retrospection on Michaels’ involments, scholarly and otherwise, with Nepal.
