Background:
Dr. Mohamed Soliman is an Egyptian archaeologist and the Director of the Advanced Studies Unit for Cultural Heritage at the National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (NRIAG) in Cairo. While completing his two-year JSPS Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Ritsumeikan University's Institute of Disaster Mitigation for Urban Cultural Heritage (DMUCH), Dr. Soliman started his research project "Qait'bay Citadel (1477-1479): Visualizing the Main Coastal Fortification of Medieval Alexandria, Egypt" in FY 2021 supported by the ARC-iJAC.

received_1166561990470172.jpegDr. Soliman, thank you very much for this interview. How was your time here in Japan?

Dr. Soliman: Thank you. Although the pandemic hit us soon after my arrival, and I had to adapt my research plans, I had a rewarding time in Japan. The field of cultural heritage studies, in particular, relies a lot on field data acquisition, so working from home is difficult.

However, I received a lot of guidance from my host professor Keiji Yano* to achieve my research goals, conduct joint research and expand my network within the Japanese research community.

*Professor Keiji Yano (College of Letters, Ritsumeikan University) is a Deputy Director of the Art Research Center.

Could you please tell us why you started the project of visualizing Qait'bay Fort?

c_2021-02-06 at 12.34.43.jpeg

Dr. Soliman: Qait'bay Fort, built in the 15th century, is not only considered one of the most significant fortifications in Egypt but along the Mediterranean Sea.

The Fort stands on the same site as the legendary Pharos Lighthouse. However, it is exposed to natural and man-made disasters such as seismic hazards and tsunamis due to this location.

The fire disaster at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in 2019 reminded us of the importance of 3D visualization to preserve and document cultural heritages at risk and make our research outcomes available to scholars and the public alike.

At the same time, the project contributes to the sustainability goals of our local tourism industry, reflected in the Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS): Egypt Vision 2030.

Furthermore, we consider this a prototype project to build bridges of scientific collaboration between Ritsumeikan University, E-JUST** and NRIAG.

The online exhibition 'Encountering Asia: Traveling, Imagination, and Creation of Arts' was jointly held by the Asia-Japan Research Institute, Ritsumeikan University, and the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University from March 1-31, 2022.

Adopted by the Program for Asia-Japan Research Development of the Asia-Japan Research Institute, the project 'Creation of Asian Art Studies' aims to open up new horizons of art research by introducing a wide range of disciplines, including esthetics, art history, dramatic arts, and other arts disciplines, as well as literature, print bibliography, history, comparative cultural history, human geography, and digital humanities to the study of the diverse arts in Asia, including Japan.

<Event> Online Gallery Talk
Date: March 6 (Sun), 2022 13:00 - 15:00 JST
Participation: via Zoom (e-mail notification will be sent upon registration)

sjL3-0004_ed2.jpgThe Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, is pleased to announce the start of our international joint research project 'Creative Collaborations: Salons and Networks in Kyoto and Osaka 1780-1880' (「上方文化サロン:人的ネットワークから解き明かす文化創造空間 1780-1880」), supported by JRP-LEAD with UKRI, an international joint research program under UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).

The research project--a collaborative scholarly enterprise among researchers and institutions in Japan and the UK--aims to analyse the cultural and social impact of art and literary salons and the collective creation of art (gassaku) in early modern Japan, particularly in the Kyoto-Osaka region during 1780-1880.

sjL3-0016_ed2.jpgAddressing the COVID-19 challenges, the project also examines how a Japan-UK research project can be conducted efficiently using digital online technologies for remote collaboration and keeping physical traveling to a minimum.

Furthermore, the project fosters early-career researchers in Japanese studies by providing an opportunity for young researchers to gain hands-on experience in the basic aspects of digital humanities within an international research environment.

sjL3-w091 Takumi_ed2.jpg

This project is led by the Principal Investigators (PI), Professor Ryo Akama, the current Director of the ARC, and Dr. Akiko Yano, Curator in the Department of Asia at the British Museum. The core team comprises researchers from the Art Research Center (ARC), Kansai University (KU), the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, the British Museum (BM), and SOAS, University of London.

The project duration is three years, and its research outcomes will be presented in an exhibition at the British Museum in 2024.

The Kunitachi College of Music Library in Tokyo holds one of the most extensive collections of materials on early modern Japanese music--the Takeuchi Dokei Collection--which belonged to the late Professor Takeuchi Dokei, a significant contributor to Japanese music research.

07-0401-001_c.jpgIn addition to ukiyo-e and banzuke already available online, we are pleased to announce that we have further released 5,100 volumes of nagauta shohon (thin lyric booklets) to the public through the Art Research Center's Virtual Institute.

https://www.arc.ritsumei.ac.jp/lib/vm/kunitake/d/

The distinctive feature of this collection is that it comprises a large number of copies of the same piece of music. For example, there are 73 authentic copies of Kyōganoko Musume Dōjōji (『京鹿子娘道成寺』) with many variations.

We hope this collection may serve you as a valuable online resource for research on the history of Japanese music, kabuki, publication culture, and the study of ukiyo-e prints.

The online exhibition 'The Three Kingdoms: The Fellowship of the Water Fishes' is held from February 14 to March 31. As part of this exhibition, we invite you to join our online lecture on March 21, 2022 (free of charge).

The lecture will be given by Prof. Isao Umebayashi (Shitennoji University) whose research project 'Collection and Preservation of Traditional Games from around the world, the Systematization and the Study of Cultural Relevance of them' is among the FY 2021 adopted joint research projects of the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC). 

Furthermore, Prof. Akinori Nakamura (College of Image Arts and Sciences, Ritsumeikan University) and Prof. Koichi Hosoi (College of Image Arts and Sciences, Ritsumeikan University), will be presenting their research findings from the Program for Supporting Research Center Formation, Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University.
