3rd Online Summer Programme in Japanese Cultural Studies: "Tourism and Heritage in Post-Lockdown Japan", 1 - 12 August 2022 / <Applications now closed.>

Organized by the Centre for Japanese Studies at the University of East Anglia and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures (SISJAC) in partnership with Toshiba International Foundation and the Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, the 2022 Online Summer Programme in Japanese Cultural Studies will be held online from August 1 to August 12.

This programme is free for all attendees, requiring no prior training in Japanese or Japanese Studies. Now in its third year, the programme was conceived as a temporary replacement for in-person summer schools, which were prevented due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, the programme has attracted incredible interest from across the globe, demonstrating a strong appetite for Japanese Studies internationally.

This edition of the programme considers directly the impacts of the Coronavirus on Japan. The curriculum will be based around the theme of "Tourism and Heritage in Post-Lockdown Japan". Throughout the world, tourism has been one of the industries most profoundly affected by the pandemic. For Japan in particular, which has sought to become a "Tourism Nation" and was host for the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games, the consequences have been significant. At the time of this announcement, while Japan has begun to gradually open to overseas tourists, the strict tour group system is a far cry from the experiences of the 34 million who visited in 2019. It therefore seems appropriate that we take this time to reconnect with Japan and explore what tourism in Japan will mean post-COVID-19. We will also consider Japan's cultural heritage, too, and how COVID-19 has affected the heritage industry, exploring the uses and value of heritage in the absence of international tourism. Over the two-week period, we will be joined by world-leading scholars, practitioners, and industry professionals based in Japan.

No prior knowledge of these fields is necessary, and with the variety of topics and interests represented by our speakers, we hope that there is something for specialists and non-specialists alike.

Over two weeks, we will be holding panels with experts based in Tokyo, Kyoto and Fukuoka to discuss "Responding to Tourist Practices", "Heritage Without Tourism" and "Local Heritage, Global Heritage":

OSP_map.pngIn addition to live virtual talks, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in asynchronous activities, join networking sessions, and will be issued a Certificate of Participation on completion of the programme. Participation is free of charge.

Deadline for applications: Thursday 30th June 2022 (Applications now closed.)

Background

nagae_outer.png

The Nagae family were merchants of the kimono fabric. Their family residence, built between the late Edo period and the Taishō period, served both as a working and living space for many generations.

The ARC has been digital-archiving the collection belonging to the Nagae Family Residence after Ritsumeikan University received it as a donation. Subsequently, the ARC has become involved in planning and managing the Byobu Matsuri held annually at the residence.

This activity is based on an industry-academia collaboration with Hoosiers Corporation, concluded with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in May 2015, to preserve and utilize the Nagae Family Residence for the development and promotion of education and research.

Background

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

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

The Kyoto News Archive has partly been completed and opened to the public, so we are holding a public symposium in commemoration of this video series to report on our research outcomes thus far and to discuss the prospects for regional video archives, including the Kyoto News Archive.

Organizer:

International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University

Supported by: Kyoto City, Toy Film Museum
