      The course examines the inter-relationships between the development of the international economy and the growth of national economies since the late nineteenth century. The course is designed to introduce students not only to a wide variety of topics and issues, but also to the wide variety of approaches used by historians. The course includes analyses of the original leading nation, Britain, and its replacement, the United States, as well as the catch-up of areas such as continental Europe, and the failure to catch-up of earlier well-placed areas such as Latin America. The effects of major events - such as wars and debt crises - are investigated, and we also consider the implications of changing global economic institutions, such as the Gold Standard and IMF, as well as the effects of sometimes rapid changes in product and process technology.

      Grant number:19H04357

      Grant amount:\9880000 ( Direct Cost: \7600000 、 Indirect Cost:\2280000 )

      2019年度は2回の研究会を行い、研究計画うちあわせ、調査倫理とデータ共有についての周知、与那国島における台湾女性引揚者の戦後キャリアについての研究報告、台湾沖縄引揚者をめぐる研究動向についての研究報告、引揚者在外事実調査票を用いた引揚者の階層と職業移動の分析についての研究報告がなされ、満洲引揚げ2世当事者によるゲストトークが行われた。
      著作としては、蘭信三・川喜田敦子・松浦雄介編著『引揚げ・追放・残留』が名古屋大学出版会から上梓され、野入(研究代表者)は「「引揚げエリート」とは誰か?」と題した本科研の基調となる論考を公表することができた。同書において、蘭(研究分担者)は序章で「引揚・追放・残留の国際比較・関係史に向けて」を論じた。
      論文では、西崎(研究分担者)が洋雑誌に招待論文を、菅野(研究分担者)が査読有の論文を刊行した。
      学会発表では、八尾(研究分担者)が国際学会で招待発表を、西崎が国内学会で招待発表を行った。
      調査研究もほぼ予定どおりに実施された。沖縄本島では戦後、パイン産業にたずさわった台湾引揚者の調査と、製糖業をめぐるハワイと沖縄の人の移動と産業にかかわる研究、那覇市歴史博物館に所蔵されている川平家資料の文献調査が行われた。沖縄県内離島では、女性引揚者の戦後キャリア、琉球官兵の戦後における引揚記憶への関与についての調査が行われた。ただし、3月に予定されていた沖縄県内での調査研究が、新型コロナウィルス感染症の流行による渡航自粛で延期を余儀なくされた研究分担者もいる。

      One of the important questions in history is how technology and knowledge have spread and allowed participants in an economy to increase their human capital. This research goes back to the 1930s and the 1940s to analyse one possible channel of human capital development: the in-house vocational training of employees by the South Manchuria Railway Company (SMR), the largest Japanese wartime public corporation. After the war, most of the Japanese staff members were repatriated to Japan. This research hypothesises that the SMR offered training opportunities to under-educated young individuals that had unanticipated benefits. These individuals benefited from their training at the SMR and entered the post-war Japanese labour market armed with the skills and knowledge acquired during the war. This research concludes that the Japanese economy was able to benefit from new skilled entrants to the labour force as one of the key sources of human capital.
