◆ 講演概要 ◆
Talk by Professor Adam Komisarof, Reitaku University
Professor Komisarof gave a fascinating talk about the ways in which people from different cultures can interact and understand each other. Most of Professor Komisarof’s research has focused on Americans and other Westerners living and working in Japan. His most recent book on this subject is At Home Abroad: The Contemporary Western Experience in Japan (published by Reitaku University Press 2012). He talked about the interviews he conducted for that book with famous Americans resident in Japan like Donald Keene, Donald Richie and Patrick Harlan. He was interested in the strategies they adopted for living in Japan and building successful careers. He also wanted to know how much they had been accepted into Japanese society. Professor Komisarof used a framework of acculturation strategies which included the following: (1) ‘Separation’ (when a smaller group lives within a larger society but only interacts in a minimal way with the host community); (2) ‘Marginalisation’ (when the smaller group loses touch with its own culture but is not accepted by the dominant culture); (3) ‘Integration’ (when the non-dominant group maintain their heritage but forge strong relations with the dominant group); (4) ‘Assimilation’ (when the dominant group accepts the participation of the non-dominant group, and the non-dominant group renounces its own culture). There was a very active discussion at this meeting which included representatives of the Japan Center for Michigan Universities (JCMU) and Shiga Prefectural University. (文責:Robert Aspinall教授)
