The Kyoto News Archive was released in the ARC Virtual Institute on June 24, 2022:
< ARC Virtual Institute: The Kyoto News Archive >

Kindly supported by the City of Kyoto and the Kyoto Toy Film Museum, the Commemorative Public Symposium 'The Kyoto News Archive: Lights of the Past Reflecting the Future' was held by the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, on July 2, 2022.

Background

In collaboration with the Toy Film Museum in Kyoto, the Art Research Center (ARC) has been building a digital archive of Kyoto News--a series of newsreels produced by Kyoto City between 1956 and 1994 (Showa 31 - Heisei 6).

During that period, the newsreels were shown in movie theaters in Kyoto before the start of the main film. As one of the earliest regional newsreels, they are a valuable historical testimony of Kyoto City. They have recorded a wide range of topics in the city, including seasonal customs and festivals.

As the Kyoto News Archive has partly been completed and opened to the public, the public symposium was held to commemorate the launching of the archive, as well as to report on our research outcomes and discuss the prospects for regional video archives.

Date: July 2 (Saturday), 2022

Time: 14:00 - 16:30 Japan Standard Time

Topic: The Kyoto News Archive: Lights of the Past Reflecting the Future

Based on a historical event, Chūshingura (The Treasury of Loyal Retainers) tells the story of forty-seven rōnin, or leaderless samurai, from Ako, who avenged the death of their lord.

The symposium began with a welcoming address by the mayor of Ako, Masatoshi Murei, followed by the individual presentations of Professor Satoko Shimazaki (UCLA), Dr. Annegret Bergmann (The University of Tokyo), Kenichiro Ishibashi (Kabuki Researcher), and Professor Ryo Akama (Ritsumeikan University), the current Director of the ARC.

c2.jpgIn the second part, Emeritus Professor Andrew Gerstle (SOAS University of London) gave a keynote speech to discuss the question ʻAre the Depictions of Loyalty, Heroism, Tragedy in Kanadehon chūshingura universal?ʼ. The symposium concluded with a panel discussion moderated by Prof. Akama.

Ako City and the ARC have been collaborating on the digital archiving of the Chūshingura Ukiyo-e Collection held by the city which is available in the Ako City Chushingura Ukiyo-e Database on the ARC website.

Based on the database, digital exhibitions have also been launched in the ARC Virtual Institute, which facilitates developing database operation methods and promoting its utilization.

Purpose of the Event: We are entering an era in which a wide variety of Big Data generated every day has an enormous impact on science, society, culture, education, the human body and mind. The effects are highly complex and diverse.

For this reason, 'visualization' that supports the effective use of a wide variety of Big Data in an integrated manner to obtain comprehensive knowledge is required. Through such visualization, our thinking will be accelerated and deepened into 'Visual Thinking'.

This symposium, the seventh in the series, is a comprehensive report on the ongoing discussion of the ways of visualization in the era of Big Data and has been held for three and a half years since the 'Visualization Subcommittee for Contributing to the Generation of Scientific Knowledge' was established at the Science Council of Japan. At the same time, it is an opportunity to discuss various ideas about visualization in the future.

祇園祭・鷹山の復興 ~2022年の山鉾巡行に向かって~祇園祭・鷹山の復興 ~2022年の山鉾巡行に向かって~

The Gion Festival in Kyoto, designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO, is one of the most important Japanese festivals.

A highlight of the festival is the magnificent parade of decorated floats known as the Yamahoko Junkō.

Amongst these, the Taka-yama float boasts a long history of participating in the parade that dates back to the 15th century.

However, the float has been absent from the festival since 1826, when a great storm damaged its decorations. The situation was further worsened by a fire that destroyed most parts of the float in 1864.

In recent years, there has been a movement to revive the Taka-yama float - a long-cherished wish of the townspeople.

Finally, the Taka-yama float is due to return to the Gion Festival in July 2022 for the first time in 200 years.

Besides reporting on the progress of its reconstruction and showcasing its return in a virtual Yamohoko parade, this event also intends to expand the circle of Takayama supporters and raise the momentum for its long-anticipated return to the Gion Festival.

*The event will be held in Japanese.

Date: June 19 (Saturday), 2021 13:00 - 16:00 (entry from 12:00)

Organizer: The Asahi Shimbun

Co-organizers: Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, Taka-yama Preservation Association

edited4.pngThe 2nd Ritsumeikan University - Tsinghua University International Academic Symposium on Saturday, May 22, 2021, focused on Japan-China Cultural Exchange and New Coordinates for the Humanities.

The symposium was jointly organized by the School of Humanities, Tsinghua University, China, and the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, supported by the Program for Asia-Japan Research Development Research on Creation and Development of Asian Arts Studies, Ritsumeikan University.

In his opening remarks, Professor Yoshio Nakatani--Chancellor of the Ritsumeikan Trust--stressed that the symposium was an excellent opportunity to promote research, academic exchange, and friendship with Tsinghua University and Chinese scholars.

Furthermore, Professor Yuping Ni--Associate Dean of the School of Humanities, Tsinghua University--expressed his hope to deepen the partnership and comprehensive cooperation between both universities, emphasizing the significance of humanities, besides natural sciences, in times of crisis and complex challenges such as the global pandemic.

During the symposium, research teams of both universities presented their perspectives and research activities in digital humanities.

Professor Takaaki Kaneko introduced the ARC Model of Digital Archiving, the center's representative databases, and how its online research environment facilitates born-digital style research.

He also explained powerful tools developed by the ARC to aid digital humanities research, such as the educational transcription system with an AI-enabled deciphering support function for the Japanese cursive script known as kuzushiji.

Furthermore, Professor Keiji Yano introduced the construction of a WebGIS-based portal database of maps and a system to compare Rakuchū rakugai-zu byobu--folding screen paintings of scenes in and around Kyoto--with maps of the present and the past.

edited6.pngConcluding the symposium, Professor Koichi Hosoi--Director of the Art Research Center--expressed his anticipation for the birth of new international joint research styles on diverse topics fueled by digital technology as both universities join efforts in digital humanities research.

Many people from Tsinghua University, Ritsumeikan University, and other universities and research institutions attended the symposium and engaged in lively discussions.

"I am very impressed that so many people are studying Japanese culture through databases and digital archives," commented Chancellor Nakatani on attending the symposium and expressed his anticipation for many new research findings to emerge from these archives.

edited1.jpgProfessor Takahiro Nishibayashi, who led the planning and organization of the symposium, expressed his gratitude to all the speakers, participants, and staff involved. "Taking the humanities as a starting point, I strongly hope that research exchange between both universities will be further deepened and involve other fields such as digital humanities," said Professor Nishibayashi.

The second joint academic symposium marked a meaningful occasion to reinforce the collaboration between both universities while highlighting the advance in humanities research on both sides with the progress in digital technology.

We look forward to further strengthening our partnership with Tsinghua University by expanding the scope of our research exchange to other research fields in the future.

*To prevent the spread of COVID-19, this event was held online via Zoom.
