Global Actions for Japanese Cultural Resources
Shifting from the Art Research Center’s conventional research activities to integrate the humanities and information science and to improve digital research environment, this project aims at challenging new issues for the ARC. That is, how the ARC can contribute to the society, including that to the Kyoto region through the utilization of cultural resources, and to international understanding of Japanese culture.
As a further step of Japanese cultural studies that we have been conducting, we need to consider strategies to have the culture enrich our lives, in some cases by producing economic wealth. For this purpose, we intend to utilize our digital research resources that we have been accumulating through the integration of the humanities and information science and digital research. By doing so, the ARC will conduct practical research on how cultural studies can contribute to the society and accumulate case studies so that we could provide practical advice on this matter.
