日本列島の生活・文化と政治・社会を具体的な事例から見つめ直す
Taking another look at the life, culture, politics, and society on the Japanese Islands from the perspectives of specific instances

日本研究コースは、日本列島に暮らす人びとの生活・文化と政治・社会を研究対象とするコースです。具体的には、個別的な地域で実際に暮らす人びとの歴史・生活・政治・宗教・思想・教育・芸術などのさまざまな事例を、鳥の眼で考察するのではなく、各自の関心や問題意識にもとづき蟻やトンボの目で考察します。これらの考察を通じ、地域に生きる人びとの生活・文化・政治・社会の総体を、相互に比較しながら広い視野で多元的、複眼的に捉え明らかにしていきます。このような日本研究の学びは、国際的・民族的に流動的な現代社会において生じている諸問題に対し、柔軟な判断力をもって対応し解決する確かな社会力を有する、グローバルな人材の育成へといざないます。
At Area of Japanese Studies, students take up the life, culture, politics, and society of the people who live on the Japanese Islands as their subjects of studies. Specifically, various instances of the history, life, politics, religion, thoughts, education, art, etc. of the people who live in the respective local places are dealt with and studied into not by a bird’s eye view, but by an ant’s or dragonfly’s eye view based on the interests of or the issues spotted by each individual student. Based on such studies, the combined total of the life, culture, politics, and society of the people who live in local places is looked into broadly in multiple and compound ways as well as through mutual comparisons. The studies of Japan conducted in the aforesaid manner are intended to foster development of globally useful talents who possess firm social capability of taking sensible decisions to respond to and resolve those types of issues which arise in the contemporary society where fluidity is apparent internationally and ethnically.

Area of Japanese Studies offers not only lectures on basic knowledge and methodologies, but also lectures and seminars focusing on the life, politics, religion, and thoughts of the respective and specific local places as well as field work programs to spot and look into the issues that arise out of those local situations which are taken from the scenes of actual daily life in the farm, mountain, or coastal villages, towns and cities spreading over the Japanese Islands. Of particular importance are seminars and field work programs where students themselves pursue studies at their own initiatives, make presentations based on their own findings and reviews, engage in mutual serious discussions, thereby polish and step up their original ways of perceiving and study methodologies towards writing each one’s graduation dissertation.
