Journal of East Asian Cultural Interaction Studies

Publication of Journal of East Asian Cultural Interaction Studies


   The Institute for Cultural Interaction Studies of Kansai University (ICIS) has been established on October last year, as a part of COE programs for 2007 selected by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). This institute, as being shown on its name, has a call to sophisticate the standard of education and research in the area of human sciences at graduate school.
    First of all, the institution, as its educational dimension, aims to train young scholars who can approach a topic from diversified ways, send academic messages in multiple languages and lead the international academic world. This will be attempted through that all the project promoters at the institute take charge of lectures for newly established course at Literature Department of the Graduate School, i.e. the Cultural Interaction and East Asian Cultural Interaction Course. By so doing, trainees will have opportunities to experience “programs for academic foreign languages” which is one of the core programs at the institute that includes “programs for the international cooperative lectures”, and “a vicinity project” which is a sort of field works.
    On its research dimension, all the staffs including supporters of the project, such as assistant professors, special researchers and post doctoral researchers at the institute are working hard by stimulated and provoked by each other. It is especially through regular meetings for “Faculty Seminar in Cultural Interaction Studies”, in which we review the research schemes which are usually separated and different in accordance with the field of specialties, and analysis units that generally vary accordingly to nation. This meeting intends to construct theories and techniques for grasping totally the interaction amongst the various cultures which had been performed on culturally compounded “the stage” called East Asia. In addition, project promoters are separated into four research groups consisted of a unit for North-East Asia, for Seacoast Asia, for Inland Asia and for Outside Asia, in which they study cases and phenomena of cultural interaction in each area.
    This first issue of Journal of East Asian Cultural Interaction Studies is a report of research results on the Cultural Interaction Studies studied by the staffs at the institute and young scholars on the field.
There is a The Institute of Oriental and Occidental Studies established in 1951 at Kansai University. In addition, there is a Center for Study of Asian Cultures established in 2005, as a part of projects of “Academic Frontier Promotion Centre”. By now, these two institutions have produced number of academic results especially concerning about the history of cultural interaction between Japan and China. Our new institute is, in a sense, an advanced organization for education and research created on the basis of these two pioneering institutions. Henceforth, we will work hard for the purposes to establish the field of Cultural Interaction Studies and to produce young researchers of this particular area, by cooperating widely with various institutions in and outside of the university.
    We would greatly appreciate any support for the progress of this institute and issue of this journal from any one of you.
