Research Theme*
  • 批判的異文化コミュニケーション論の立場から、文化と権力関係が関わるコミュニケーションの分析および理論研究を主な研究課題としている。これまでの研究では、アジア系アメリカ人の人種表象、日本のナショナリズム言説、日本の人種概念・人権主義など、文化的「他者」および「自己」が構築される差異化および序列化のプロセスを考察してきた。現在の研究上の関心は、「日本人」とその文化的「他者」の差異化・序列化のプロセスを問題化し、日本社会におけるマジョリティの「日本人」意識を変容することで、多様な文化背景の人々の所属意識や文化実践が尊重される多文化社会をいかにつくっていくかである。

      This paper examines the interrelationships among Japaneseness, the Western and Japanese concepts of race, and the obfuscation of racism in contemporary Japanese society. The concept of race, which was conceived in the West in the modern era, has influenced the Japanese concepts of race, jinshu and minzoku. These two concepts played a key role in constructing modern Japan’s identity by distinguishing it from its significant discursive Others: Asia and the West. Today the Japanese simply call themselves nihonjin, or Japanese people, rarely using the terms jinshu and minzoku, and racism is generally viewed as a ‘foreign issue’ that has little relevance to Japanese society. The purpose of this study is threefold. First, it discusses how the Japanese concepts of race, jinshu and minzoku, were constructed and shaped the dominant meaning of the Japanese in different historical contexts, intertwining with Western notions of race, nation, Volk, and ethnicity. Second, it suggests that obscured racism in contemporary Japan is linked with the conceptual presence and nominal absence of jinshu and minzoku in defining Japaneseness. Third, it explores how the contemporary modality of racism in Japan overlaps with and differs from racisms in the West.

    • Neoliberalism, nationalism, and intercultural communication: A critical analysis of a Japan’s neoliberal nationalism discourse under globalization Peer-reviewed

      This paper attempts to draw implications of neoliberalism for intercultural communication by critically analyzing a Japanese neoliberal nationalism discourse. In January 2000, a governmental report proposed adopting English as an official language of Japan. Utilizing the notion of representation as a methodological lens for the analysis, this essay first examines how Japanese culture and communication, which have played key roles in asserting Japanese “uniqueness” along with the Japanese language, are redefined in the report. This essay then investigates how Japan's relations with Asia and the West—two significant discursive “Others” for constructing Japan's identity—are depicted in the text and situate the representation of Japanese culture and communication in the discursive triad for further contextualizing the analysis. © 2009 National Communication Association.

      Globalisation has accelerated the spread of English internationally, challenged nationalisms and put nation states in a dilemma in which they have to promote English, a foreign language, in addition to their national languages. Focusing on the proposal in January 2000 to establish English as an official language of Japan, this study attempts to understand and critique how English is represented in relation to Japanese nationalism in government and popular discourses and thereby explores implications for teaching English as a foreign language and intercultural communication. © 2007 Taylor &amp

    • Stereotyping Asian Americans: The dialectic of the model minority and the yellow peril Peer-reviewed

      The model minority stereotype is viewed as the most influential and pervasive stereotype for Asian Americans today. In this article, the author argues that this seemingly positive stereotype, the model minority, is inseparable from the yellow peril, a negative stereotype, when Asian Americans are stereotypically represented in mainstream media texts. The model minority-yellow peril dialectic is explicated with the concepts of racial triangulation and the ambivalence of stereotypes. Racial meanings for Asian Americans cannot be discussed without considering both local and global contexts. The author explores historical, political, and economic contexts of both the United States and Asia in which the two stereotypes were produced and reproduced, and examines how the dialectic of the model minority and the yellow peril operates in a Hollywood film, Rising Sun.

      日本に定住もしくは永住している多様な差異を持つ人々を対象とし、これらの人々を「日本社会を構成する市民」として捉え、社会の周縁化の力学と日々交渉しながらどのようなアイデンティティや帰属意識を構築しているのかについて、聞き取り調査と文化表現・メディア発信から実証的に検証する。これを通し、日本社会がいかに多様なアイデンティティと差異を持つ市民が共生する空間となっているのか、「日本人」という境界がすでにどのように多元化し変容しているのかを考察することで、多様な差異が正当に承認および尊重される「多文化社会・日本」のあり方の構想を目指す。
