'Why Attention to Religion is Vital to Understanding Politics in Japan' with Levi McLaughlin, NC State University

In opinion polls, Japanese respondents routinely supply some of the world's lowest rates in response to the question "do you have religious faith?" Japan's 1947 Constitution reinforces an impression of a Japanese allergy to religion by including multiple articles that separate religion from state. For these and other reasons, people in Japan today are often characterized as highly averse to religion, particularly as it may appear in the public sphere. It is therefore striking to note the seemingly disproportionate impact religions and religion-adjacent activists exert on vote-gathering, policymaking, and other political activities. In this talk, Levi McLaughlin will draw on his ethnographic and historical research to provide an overview of Shinto-affiliated nationalists (including the lobby organization Nippon Kaigi and its signatories), Buddhists (including Soka Gakkai and its affiliated party Komeito), and other actors to reconcile the incommensurate image of Japan as non-religious with the persistence of J… Event interval: Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO).

'Help (Not) Wanted: Immigration Politics in Japan' with Michael Strausz, Texas Christian University

Why has Japan’s immigration policy remained so restrictive, especially in light of economic, demographic, and international political forces that are pushing Japan to admit more immigrants? Michael Strausz will answer this question by drawing on insights from nearly two years of intensive field research in Japan outlined in the central argument of his 2019 book and providing context to recent developments in Japanese immigration policy – particularly the December 2018 decision to admit more than 300,000 foreign manual laborers, the immigration policy response to the COVID pandemic, and the role of immigration in the 2021 House of Representatives election.   Michael Strausz is an Associate Professor of Political Science and the Director of Asian Studies at Texas Christian University. He earned his PhD in Political Science from the University of Washington in 2007. He is currently editing a collection of essays by an interdisciplinary group of scholars tentatively titled “The Past and Future of Immigration in… Event interval: Campus location: Thomson Hall (THO).

"What is Haiku?"

It is well known that haiku are very brief Japanese poems, probably the shortest poems in the world.  With their simple syllabic pattern and lack of rhyming, they are easy to write—even children can and do write beautiful haiku!  Although they originated in Japan, many millions of haiku have been written in various languages in addition to Japanese.  Today, haiku truly belong to the world.    How and why did haiku come about?  Why are haiku so short?  Why do they include precisely 17 syllables in a 5-7-5 arrangement?  This talk, which presumes no knowledge of Japan or the Japanese language, will answer these questions and more.  In an engaging overview of this fascinating topic, Professor Paul Atkins will discuss the origins of haiku in medieval Japan, introduce the major classic poets, and explore the ways in which haiku is linked to other forms of Japanese literature and art.  Haiku is not just a poetic genre—it is a way of looking at the world and, for many people, a way of life.    This talk will be follo… Campus room: Kane 210.

'The Life We Longed For: Danchi Housing and the Middle-Class Dream in Postwar Japan' with Laura Neitzel

In the 1950s, high-rise housing projects called danchi appeared on Japan’s urban perimeters to address the nation’s urgent housing crisis after World War II. With modern kitchens, private baths, and steel doors that locked out intrusive neighbors, and inhabited by aspiring middle-class families that could afford refrigerators, washing machines, electric rice cookers and other new objects of consumer desire, the danchi quickly entered the social imaginary as a “life to long for.” Though criticized by many as cramped and isolating, the danchi lifestyle helped to redefine the parameters of middle-class expectations in ways that continue to resonate today amidst anxieties of social change and middle-class decline. In this talk, Laura Neitzel will discuss the ongoing significance of the danchi to the ways many in Japan interpret the past and diagnose the present. Laura Neitzel is Senior Fellow in Global Thought and Senior Fellow in the Discipline of History at Columbia University where she designs and teaches… Event interval: Campus location: Gould Hall (GLD).

Hafu ハーフ - film screening

Hafu (2013 Producer/Director/Videographer Megumi Nishikura) With an ever increasing movement of people between places in this transnational age, there is a mounting number of mixed-race people in Japan, some visible others not. “Hafu” is the unfolding journey of discovery into the intricacies of mixed-race Japanese and their multicultural experience in modern day Japan. The film follows the lives of five “hafus”–the Japanese term for people who are half-Japanese–as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as the mono-ethnic nation. Each quarter during the academic year the UW Japan Studies Program will host a film followed by discussion. Tentative films: Ainu the Indigenous People of Japan (Ainu ひと)(2019 Producer/Director/Camera/Editor: Naomi Mizoguchi) Yakiniku Dragon (焼肉ドラゴン) (2018 Writer/Director Wui-Sin Chong).
