Hitokoto Ichiba #8 - "Mediating Disputes: Discussing Techniques of Living Together through Different Cultures"

2017-1-26 (Thu) 19:00 - 20:00

The Hitokoto Ichiba is a place where people from outside of the university can connect with the goings-on from inside of the university. Let's take a look at the topic for this session!

For part 8 in this series, we'll be joined by FUJII Shinichi of the Department of Area Studies, Faculty of International Studies, Tenri University. In our daily lives, we're sometimes met with
"disputes," such as a friend not returning something that you lent to him or her, or even serious arguments within a family. Do differences in societal rules and how people live cause differences in the kinds of disputes people have? We'll hear from a lecturer who has actually traveled to the Solomon Islands and performed research on both the culture and the conflicts that have occurred there in recent years. Let's discuss "living together with others" through the "disputes" of a culture that is much different than that of Japan.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
