    Founded in 2002, the Institute of Japanese Studies at Kookmin University has set a model for area studies in ROK. After a mere span of ten years, the IJS stands today at the forefront of Japanese studies in Korea by accumulating an array of critically acclaimed projects ranging from primary source compilation to multidisciplinary analyses of Japanese society and the post war ROK-Japan relations. In celebrating the first successful decade, all of us at the IJS continue to do research of our historical agenda and renew our commitment to the common problems between the ROK and Japan in the near future. And we are prepared, as in the past, to put our findings to the test with the same rigor by working with fellow researchers from all over the world.

    국민대학 일본학연구소는 2002 년 설립된 이래 한국의 일본연구 니즈에 부응하는 연구성과를 축적하고 국내 외 일본연구자 네트워크의 구축에 노력해 왔다 . 연구소에는 17 명의 박사급 연구원이 소속하고 있고 대체로 전 공은 현대일본의 정치와 전후 한일관계사 분야에 집중되고 있다 . 10 년간 역점을 두고 추진한 연구 분야는‘ 현대 일본의 정치경제시스템’과“ 전후 한일외교사”이다 . 기존의 연구축적을 토대로 하여 본 연구소는 향후에도 전후 한일외교사를 중심축으로 하는 연구를 추구할 것이며 또 한편으로 한국과 일본이 당면하고 있는 인구 , 재정, 복 지, 환경, 에너지 등 공통의 과제 군에 관한 연구도 기획, 수행할 계획이다 .

    The postwar Japan studies in Taiwan, previously rather limited, under certain government policies gradually opened in 1990s. After 2000, with the influx of the new-generation researchers, it gradually developed toward specialization. Overall, Japan studies in Taiwan are currently facing seven significant problems. First, the gradual decrease of Japan's international influence; second, its priority of practical applicability; third, the lack of area studies tradition; fourth, Japan's relatively low interest toward Japan studies in Taiwan; fifth, shortage of professional Japan studies periodicals in Taiwan; sixth, discrepancy in the supply of the area professionals; seventh, not yet established Japan studies in the country. In addition to these problems, Japan studies in Taiwan also are confronted with three major challenges. That is construction of the core values of the study field, training and employment of the area professionals, as well as the contribution that academic exchange could make to the development of Japan-Taiwan relations. Given the current tasks and challenges, contemporary Japan studies should develop to link the scholarship and practice, system and tendencies, as well as global and local levels.

     戰後台灣的日本研究,在政府政策的影響下,進入1990 年代後才逐漸從限制到走向開放。2000 年之後,隨著新世代日本研究學者的投入,台灣的日本研究逐漸朝向專業化發展。整體而言,當代台灣的日本研究在人才的培育與學術的發展上,面臨到下述七項重大課題:第一,日本逐漸喪失國際影響力;第二,台灣日本研究偏重應用層面;第三,台灣缺乏區域研究傳統;第四,日本對台灣日本研究的關心不足;第五,台灣缺乏日本研究的專門期刊;第六,台灣日本研究人才出現斷層;第七,台灣尚未建構日本學門。上述課題亦反映出當代台灣日本研究面臨的三大挑戰:學術核心價值的建構,專業人才的培育與就業、學術交流對台日關係發展的貢獻。在上述的課題與挑戰下,當代台灣的日本研究必須朝向學術與經驗連結,制度與趨勢連結,全球與在地連結的方向發展。 Download this Article (PDF) 12pages/1.14MB/Japanese
  • Collaborative Creativity, Dark Energy, and Anime's Global Success
    Ian Condry
    Associate Professor, Comparative Media Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

    In this essay, I give an overview of some of the main ideas of my new book The Soul of Anime: Collaborative Creativity and Japan's Media Success Story. Drawing on ethnographic research, including fieldwork at Madhouse, as well as a historical consideration of the original Gundam series, I discuss how anime can be best understood in terms of platforms for collaborative creativity. I argue that the global success of Japanese animation has grown out of a collective social energy that operates across industries?including those that produce film, television, manga (comic books), and toys and other licensed merchandise?and connects fans to the creators of anime. For me, this collective social energy is the soul of anime.

  • Chinese Communist Policy towards Hong Kong - Pre-PRC to the End of the 1950s
    Lian Shu
    Part-time Lecturer, Faculty of Policy Management, Keio University

    This study is about Chinese Communist policy towards Hong Kong just before and after the establishment of the People's Republic of China. In previous studies, it is said that the Chinese Communist Party decided to delay to get HK back because such an action could trigger a war which was able to get the US involved. This study concluded that the CCP never planned to retrieve Hong Kong from Britain from the very beginning. Chinese HK policies were one of its strategies towards countries in the intermediate area where Britain was included. Realism and flexibility played a much more important role in Chinese Communist foreign policies in the 1950s. Download this Article (PDF) 11pages/550KB/Japanese
  • A Study of Cross-border Trade and Livelihood Strategy on Sino-Vietnam Border
    Han Na
    Senior Visiting Researcher, Keio Research Institute at SFC

    This is a study of the "Cross-border transporters" in a Vietnam-China border region, the longheld practice of supporting livelihood. On the one hand, they have successfully adapted to politicaleconomic changes as reflected in the border trade regulations since the 1991 China-Vietnam normalization, and, at the same time, they have sustained the long-held perception of their sphere of livelihood as encompassing the areas lying on both sides of the border. A close examination of their activities, which involve the transport of diverse daily commodities from a Chinese town to a Vietnamese town, uncovers the transporters' careful calculations of risks and returns involved, and, more importantly, the persistent perception that their livelihood depends on their ability to transcend the existence of the border.
  • Georgian Elections - On the Verge between Democratic Transfer of Power and Nonviolent Revolution
    David Goginashvili

    Georgian parliamentary elections in October of 2012 provide the first precedent of a peaceful regime change by elections in the country. At the same time it is a rare case in the whole region, and thus captured considerable attention all over the globe. In this paper, I evaluate the role of the Georgian society in these elections, which has been severely ignored in the discourse over the Georgia's political development, and in contradiction to widely spread presumption, I argue that the political process of transfer of power displayed some elements characterizing a nonviolent revolution and was far from being democratic and fair. At the same time, I argue that the discourse, which portrays the newly elected Ivanishvili's government as a pro-Russian regime, as an attempt to analyze the elections in the prism of international conjuncture is fundamentally misleading and lacks wellfounded arguments.
  • Phrasal Verbs in Second Language Acquisition - The Trouble Spots Japanese Learners of English Face When Learning Three-word Phrasal Verbs
    Shunsuke Nakamura
    Teacher, Mizuho Nougei High School

    This research aims at analyzing the possible problems which tend to take place when Japanese learners of English learn "three-word phrasal verbs". Previous research has shown that phrasal verbs are generally difficult for second language learners to acquire. This study focuses on the area of "three-word phrasal verbs," an area which has not been explored yet in the field of second language acquisition. The main question is: How do the variables such as semantic transparency, familiarity with the target phrasal verbs, overseas experiences, and the level of English proficiency influence the acquisition of "three-word phrasal verbs" by Japanese learners? On the basis of the findings, we make some pedagogical suggestions for teaching phrasal verbs in the context of Japanese classrooms. Download this Article (PDF) 12pages/786KB/Japanese
  • Masao Maruyama's View of the United States of America
    Takujo Egami
    Full-Time Teacher, Sugimori High School

    Masao Maruyama, a representative intellectual of the twentieth century, praised the USA's "bourgeois democracy" for its prewar opposition to fascism, while criticizing it postwar for bringing about the remilitarization of Japan and the McCarthyism that accompanied the Cold War. After visiting the US in 1961, Maruyama avoided giving public lectures on America, first because of a change in research focus from political science to the history of political thought, and second because of the inscrutability of a modernized US without history. However, Maruyama privately maintained an interest in the diversity in the USA. This was because of the existence of a liberal climate that urged reflection on the conservative swing, including antiwar and antinuclear perspectives.
