GLOCOLセミナー(120) GLOCOLを越えて グローバル共生の進化型を求めて

2014年12月15日 (月) 14:00 から 16:15

来年、GLOCOLは9年目の年限を迎えます。これまで大学のなかでの超領域的研究・教育・アドボカシーを牽引してきたGLOCOLがそのときにどのような進化を遂げているか、興味のもたれるところです。学内よりもむしろ海外での評価が高いGLOCOLの一つの進む道は、海外の研究機関とのネットワークのなかにその機能を拡大させていくことかも知れません。

本セミナーでは、 日本学術振興会(JSPS)の外国人特別研究員としてGLOCOLに所属しているスロベニア出身の研究者のコーディネートにより、「日本における中国系移民家族の生存戦略」と、「語り部による東日本大震災の記憶」をそれぞれテーマとする研究報告を通して、その可能性について考えてみたいと思います。

※本セミナーは英語講演、通訳なしとなっております。

"Recent Chinese migrants in Japan: Understanding migration through family lens"
Martina Bofulin, JSPS/Osaka University

The last three decades of out-migration from People's Republic of China have made an impact on the country of origin as well as on numerous countries of settlement. In Japan, Chinese migrants became the largest foreign resident group in 2008, surpassing Koreans, who were for decades perceived as the largest immigrant group. But this statistical observation fails to account for the number of different categories, groups, life-styles and modes of immigration that fall under a very broad label "Chinese" and downplays the great variety of structural conditions that have underpinned these migrations and the migrants' ability to navigate them.

Following transnational turn in migration studies that has shifted scholarly attention to the both ends of migration process (i.e. the places of origin as well as settlement) and highlighted the importance of family ties, my research examines primarily how migration-related decisions are made within families and how relations among family members are re-negotiated in the context of diverse processes of movement from PRC. This lecture addresses above issues among two research groups: firstly, among migrants with children that have come to Japan as adults from various parts of China and are of diverse professional backgrounds; and secondly, among high school students that have migrated as children or young adolescents mostly from China's Northeast and many of whom are in some way connected to the re-migration of the Japanese war orphans. These findings will be then juxtaposed to my earlier research on family practices among Chinese migrants in Southeast Europe to reflect on the saliency of family ties among Chinese migrants under different structural conditions and among diverse groups of migrants.

Martina Bofulin, received her PhD from University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and is currently a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at GLOCOL, Osaka University. In the past year she has conducted research on Chinese migration to Japan with the focus on the long distance practices that help to sustain families across borders. This is a continuation of her interest in transnational Chinese migration, which she previously examined in the European context. In the near future she will begin her tenure as a Research Fellow at Slovenian Migration Institute, where she will focus on Chinese tourists and their hosts in Southeast Europe.

"Testimonies of the disaster: Constructing 3.11 through first-person narratives"
Maja Veselič, JSPS/Sophia University

In the three years and a half since the great earthquake and devastating tsunami hit the coast of northeast Japan and the nuclear meltdown that followed in their wake, numerous attempts have been made to document and share in words and images the experiences of those affected. The actors in these endeavors, their motivations, the medium of chronicling and presenting the events, the scope and focus of the experiences covered and their real or imagined audiences differ across these various projects.

This talk will discuss two different types of oral narrative attempts to preserve and pass down the memories of the 3.11 triple disaster, one in the form of a reformed oral tradition, represented by the now wide-spread disaster kataribe storytelling; and the other in the form of a video oral narrative archive Voices from Tohoku, collected at Sophia University in Tokyo, a small part of which also includes video interviews with kataribe and recordings of kataribe performances used for this presentation. Focusing mainly on the former, I will analyze the standardization of the disaster kataribe genre (e.g. narrative structures, imageries, use of space and objects as mnemonic devices) as well as the politics of such storytelling, especially as it relates to the issues of legitimacy and representation, association with tourism and the increasing focus on disaster preparedness pedagogy. Through a brief comparison with the Voices from Tohoku project, I will then examine kataribe storytelling as an archive-like undertaking with its own characteristics of selection and display, in order to demonstrate how this particular disaster is construed through two different collections of first-person accounts.

Maja Veselič (PhD in anthropology) has just concluded her tenure as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Comparative Culture, Sophia University, Tokyo. Over the past two years she has conducted research on Buddhist aid provision and recovery support in post-3.11 Tohoku, with a side interest in local disaster storytellers (kataribe). Her previous work has focused on issues of ethnicity and religion in the People's Republic of China, especially with reference to Muslim minorities.
