【AAA】AES Business Meeting and Other News/2014 Senior Book Prize Honorable Mention (佳作)PRECARIOUS JAPAN (Anne Allison)‏

2014.11.27
AAA よりお知らせです。
 
最近、研究室に入架した PRECARIOUS JAPAN (Anne Allison) が2014 Senior Book Prize  Honorable Mention (佳作)に選ばれておりました。
 
アリソン氏の著作『菊とポケモン グローバル化する日本の文化力』 (原著: Millennial Monsters:Japanese Toys and the Global Imagination も研究室に有)は日本語で読めますので、ぜひ挑戦してみましょう。同書で彼女は、日本のポップカルチャーがアメリカや世界中の子どもたちを惹きつけている謎を、フロイトの polymorphous perversity (邦訳版では「多様変容」と訳されている)の概念と彼女の造語である「テクノ-アニミズム」から分析しています。
自然発生的(?)な交流に対して、日本のクール・ジャパン・キャンペーンにはっきり反対姿勢を取っているところも面白いです。
 
「日本であろうと他のどの国であろうと、ソフトパワーを行使する国について、私は慎重にならざるを得ません。ソフトパワーは、ある部分、文化的所有物を自国の利益のための道具とみなしているからです。……
たとえば他国の歴史や過去と真摯にかかわっていこうとする、文化的な交流関係や相互理解の努力をする動きをさしおいて、ソフトパワーが行使されるのは歓迎しかねます。」
 
ちなみに・・・「菊」は特に関係ありません。日本語版あとがきに、最終的には受け入れたが、出版社から『菊と刀』をもじった題名をつけたいと提案されショックだったと記されています(詳しくは読んでみてください)。ベネディクトの影響力、未だ巨大。

AES Spring Conference
Join us at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside
 
San Diego, March 12-14, 2015
Conference Theme |  EMERGENCE
Proposals are due January 24, 2015 |  Call for Papers
 
Of the many special events, be sure to catch the Visual Anthropology Workshop, with documentary filmmaker and anthropologist Robert Lemelson (UCLA). Advance registration required (details forthcoming on the AES website). Ethnographic film and video can convey the lives of the people we study in powerful, evocative and moving ways. With new highly portable cameras and editing software, doing visual anthropology is easier than ever. During the 2015 AES meetings in San Diego, California, participants in our visual anthropology workshop will get hands-on advice about planning, shooting, and editing ethnographic footage to convey meaningful anthropological perspectives to a wide audience.

 
Graduate Student Workshops at the Spring Conference
So far we have lined up three student workshops for the spring AES conference in San Diego. Julia Elyachar (UC Irvine) will lead a workshop on debt and emergence. Gaston Gordillo (U British Columbia) will lead one on emergent spaces. A third workshop will be led by Angelique Haugerud (AE and Rutgers U) and Rebecca Tolen (Indiana U Press) (and possibly others) on publishing, and is for graduate students as well as early-career faculty. Details on all these workshops TBA.
