    An organization is not meaningful only in achieving its individual objectives. In particular, if an organization contributes to the sustainability of people's livelihoods, i.e., the sustainability of the community, it can be highly valued, even if the means become the end. This is illustrated by the case studies of community-based organizations in the Philippines and Nepal.

  • Visualization and Analysis of Small Place Names in Japan Using Data from Official Surveys and Cadastral Maps from the Meiji Era: A Case Study of Koaza Names in Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan

    Yoshinori Kasai

    Art Research (Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University)  24 ( 1 ) 3 - 18 2023.07

    Research paper (bulletin of university, research institution), Single Work, Lead author, Corresponding author, Accepted,  ISSN  2436-5408

     View Summary

    This paper examines whether small place names can be the subject of “political” analyses. For this purpose, a small land title database and geographic information system data were created and analyzed using the results of official surveys and cadastral maps from the Meiji era. Consequently, regional characteristics related to naming were clarified through a comparison with preceding studies. In addition, the principle of “one hamlet per village” and the differences between hamlet and non-hamlet areas in the naming conventions were clarified. The findings of this paper suggest that small place names can also be the subject of “political” analyses if appropriate data are prepared.

    Journal of Lifology (Japan Society of Lifology)   ( 41 ) 15 - 29 2022.12

    Research paper (scientific journal), Single Work, Lead author, Corresponding author, Accepted

     View Summary

    This paper investigates the local community as a unit in which people form cooperative relationships in their daily lives. In this case study, five isekohs located in Megawa, Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture, are investigated. The paper uses 122 years of account books for these isekohs, from 1893 to 2015 as data. Generally, isekohs are groups of people of faith who self-organize on a voluntary basis. In the subject area, the isekohs were integrated with the community, managing property held in common and organizing other functional groups. Over time, its community character gradually shifted to that of a neighborhood organization. The three-tier structure of an isekoh, characterizing it as a community, a fundamental association, and a specific-purpose association in the case of this report is seen to have shifted from the subregional level within the village to the village level. However, in some areas, the three-tier structure itself is overlaid with multiple layers, and such differences in structure represent regional characteristics. To identify these differences, a comparative study of materials from continuously adjacent micro community units that incorporates them in a mutually complementary manner, which is adopted in this study, is useful.

     View Summary

    Japan has an extremely high aging population. The birthrate is also declining rapidly. In this context, it is important to view the elderly not only as recipients of support, but also as proactive and autonomous actors who contribute to the resilience of local communities. In this presentation, a community of about 3,000 households in Shiga Prefecture, one of the many "new towns" that were built in Japan especially in the 1970s, will be used as a case. The land was created by carving out a mountain, and was uninhabited before the town. Therefore, people had to build the community themselves, and still do not see any traditional customs such as festivals and ceremonies, etc. Households that moved to the area in their 30s in the 1980s are now around 80 years old. Therefore, I conducted a life history survey of 25 elderly persons between the ages of 75 and 85, and examined the diversity of their involvement with the local community, while also confirming life events such as marriage, employment, and relocation. In addition, all monthly local newsletters from 1977, when the neighborhood association was founded there, to the present were collected and databased for quantitative text analysis. The results showed that (1) the elderly contribute to various activities such as volunteerism, self-governance, and support for the lives of their children; (2) although the elderly themselves do not see a direct relationship between the work they did in their youth and their current activities, they are strongly influenced by the way they form connections, their attitude toward projects, and the process of organizing; and (3) newsletters are useful for capturing the atmosphere of a community, but it is difficult to analyze individual lives, and life histories are the opposite, so it is effective to use them in a complementary manner.

  • Voluntary Association As a Predecessor of Resident Self-Governing Bodies in Japan

     View Summary

    In Japan, there are resident self-governing bodies, Jichikai, throughout the country. One of the main reasons for the existence of those organizations throughout the country is that those organizations were created or reorganized top-down for the purpose of national control during World War II. This has led many to understand that the predecessors of today's Jichikai are the end organizations of the wartime wing of the system. However, these organizations were not created from scratch during the war, and many of them utilized organizations that existed in village communities before the war. However, such organizations are still considered to be symbolic of the feudalistic and patriarchal Japanese village community of the prewar period. Against this backdrop, this presentation focuses on the koh, associations that existed in many places but was created on a bottom-up basis. There existed an extremely diverse range of koh in local communities, including those based on religious beliefs, those for intraregional finance, and those for professional groups. Among them, Ise-koh, a religious organization for joint pilgrimages to the famous Ise Jingu shrine, were organized nationwide. In this presentation, I analyze five existing Ise-koh in a village in Shiga Prefecture, Japan, by collecting the account books of Ise-koh from the 18th century to the present from residences. As a result, it became clear that in this village, the Ise-koh, a religious and voluntary organization, had an important continuity as a predecessor of the subsequent Jichikai. This is in sharp contrast to the view of the autonomous community association as controlling and top-down. To supplement the research, (1) a GIS analysis using some 19th century old maps was conducted to identify the spatial extent of the villages, and (2) life history and folklore surveys were conducted to clarify the regional characteristics of contemporary society.

Here, the elderly are considered to contribute to that resiliency as active players in local communities. In order to analyze the linkage between the community characteristics of the local community and the elderly's activities of contributing to the local community, this study will take a qualitative mixed research approach, focusing on the investigation of local history and life history. The three main target areas are "traditional communities along old highways," "new towns built in the 1970s," and "former mining/present dairy and fishing villages.

     View Summary

    (1) Introduction
     Even in an age of increasing mobility and population influx into urban areas, the attribute of region cannot be ignored as a unit for all social problems. Social problems such as inequality, epidemics, and conflicts are all analyzed in terms of some kind of local community, such as a country, region, municipality, or settlement.
     In order to describe a specific regional society or to clarify regional characteristics, a holistic approach is taken, and the result is a monograph that describes the region in detail. In order to treat the local community comprehensively, it is necessary to complement each other in terms of quality/quantity and time/space.
    (2) Mutual complementation of quality/quantity (mixed research method)
     There was a time when the relationship between qualitative and quantitative research, or between qualitative and quantitative social research, was viewed in an antagonistic structure, including essential discussions such as whether it is scientific or not. Today, however, the two are rather complementary, and in particular, social research methods require the strategic combination (triangulation) of multiple methods that span both. Such research that combines qualitative and quantitative research is called mixed methods research.
     The simplest type of complementary relationship is one in which qualitative social surveys generate hypotheses about the characteristics of the local community and quantitative social surveys test these hypotheses, based on a clear division of roles.
    (3) Temporal/spatial complementarity
     Time and space are fundamental elements that define a local community. As long as we use the term "region," it is obvious that it is a spatial area of some kind. On the other hand, it is not obvious what kind of spatial area should be treated as a local community. That is, a particular location in space belongs to multiple communities in a multilayered manner. In some institutional spaces, such as municipalities, a limited discussion may be sufficient, but when dealing with communities such as living areas and cognitive spaces, an empirical/subjective approach to space becomes essential.
     It is only with the passage of time that some spatial area deepens its meaning as a community. In other words, the accumulation of social elements through the accumulation of people's activities gives rise to regional characteristics. In this regard, it is essential to conduct as much historical analysis of the society as possible, regardless of the length of time.
    (4) Social research method matrix of quality/quantity and time/space
     Based on the above, a comprehensive survey combining methods in the four quadrants of [quality x time], [quality x space], [quantity x time], and [quantity x space] is effective in social surveys of local communities.
     There are countless individual methods of social research, such as the life history method (life history method) and historical document reading using old documents for [quality x time], and spatial statistics using a geographic information system (GIS) for [quantity x space].
    (5) Purpose of this research
     Although existing local social surveys are also in the nature of comprehensive surveys, the analysis of social survey history based on the above-mentioned organization is not sufficiently advanced. Given this situation, the objective of this study can be summarized as "to identify a methodology for establishing a comprehensive system of community social surveys.

  • A Qualitative Study of the Life Experiences of the Elderly to Contribute to Resilience in a Shrinking and Aging Society

    Japan Society for the Promotions of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (KAKENHI), Yoshinori Kasai, Grant-in-Aid for Transformative Research Areas (A), Research grant, Principal investigator

     View Summary

    Future Japanese society must be based on the assumption of a shrinking and aging society. Even in a shrinking and aging society, local communities in rural areas have a certain degree of resilience. Here, it is not enough to analyze the elderly in rural areas as an object to be supported, but rather it is important to consider them as the main players of a symbiotic society. Elderly people, who are now in their early 70s, have experienced social transformations in their lifestyles during their lifetimes, and their relationships with local communities and lifestyles have also changed significantly. In this study, we will conduct life history interviews mainly with the same generation, and at the same time, we will conduct a qualitative mixed research method by analyzing local documents such as folklore, local events, and community newsletters in order to clarify the society in which they have lived.

     View Summary

    1. Purpose of the Study
    In recent years there has been a renewed interest in "public history". Public history is a term that refers to the practice of history by/for the public, a concept that includes history that is not limited to academic studies by historians.
    Yutaka Suga, one of the editors of "Introduction to Public History" (2020, Bensei Shuppan), states in the same book that "public history does not point to a new field, subject, or method of historical study, but rather to a new direction in which historical studies should head within contemporary society," and that " In the field, it is natural to bring together wisdom that is more than interdisciplinary, but more de-disciplinary," and that public history is "a 'commons' that spans all the humanities and social sciences. He also points out that early public history was a false dichotomy that placed extreme emphasis on the academic-public divide, and he advocates collaboration between the two. In other words, he hopes that "historiography will overcome the dichotomy and compartmentalization of academic/public and reconnect once again, and reconstruct itself as an activity of knowledge production that includes the practice of facing the society in front of us.
    This research project will confront the above-mentioned issues of public history and deepen the discussion on public history through discussions among collaborators from a wide range of fields in the humanities and social sciences, who will bring together their knowledge in their respective fields. Through this process, we aim to present a part of a methodology to formulate history in a broad sense, in which academics and society collaborate in a dialogic manner. It is important to note here that public history has two characteristics: "historical practice" and "the study of historical practice.
    Public history has first of all the character of "historical practice" itself. The subject of historical practice is first of all ordinary people. When Minoru Hokari called "doing history" in "Radical Oral History" (2004, Ochanomizu Shobo), he emphasized each "experience. HOKARI did not exclude narratives of experience (as unscientific or baseless), nor did he include them in the form of respect, but aimed at communication across the gap, considering the possibility of connection between different and fundamentally incomprehensible experiences.
    In the process of historical practice, in which each person weaves his or her own experience and their own past without being monopolized by historians, not only ordinary people, but also researchers who listen to their narratives or tell their own stories - whether they are historians or not - can become subjects. --The historian or not, the researcher can be a subject of the process. Herbert Gans, in "Urban Villagers" (2006, Harvest), argues that it is appropriate to classify the research method of participant observation not according to the secrecy of the researcher's identity, but according to the role of the researcher. That is, there are two extremes, the true observer and the true participant, and the role of the "investigating observer" in between. The researcher involved in public history will also have both aspects of observer and participant.
    In other words, the researcher is not only a subject of historical practice, but also a subject who is heavily involved in another aspect of the nature of public history, namely, the study of historical practice as an object of study. In order to overcome the "academic/public dichotomy," this study is characterized by the fact that it is composed of many "practicing researchers" without being biased toward either practice or research.

    2. outline of research content
    Public history will be approached from the perspectives of (1) practice and (2) research. In (1) practice, we will formulate and promote historical practices in the act of weaving public history, i.e., interviews, workshops, etc. In (2) research, we will conduct research on public history. In (2) research, in addition to theoretical research on public history, we will analyze historical practices spun out in practice. In addition, as an area that bridges practice and research, we will focus on archiving, including the collection, organization, and utilization of historical materials. Analog data (handwritten materials, paper materials, tapes, etc.) will be digitized, and methods of use and expression will be devised and implemented to prevent information from being lost.
    This research is a joint research project by 23 researchers, including the principal investigator. The main regions covered by the joint researchers are mainly East Asia, but also other regions (Africa, Europe, Central and South America, Australia, etc.) are widely distributed. Even when a region is the main case study, there are cases in which multiple ethnic groups, such as immigrants, are included as case studies. The academic fields of study include sociology, linguistics, folklore, anthropology, and a wide range of other humanities and social sciences. They work in a wide variety of media, including audio (oral traditions, discourse, audiotapes), documents (account books, periodicals (community association newsletters), official documents), and video. Each person participates in the target historical practice from a different standpoint in the gradation between observer and participant.
    In other words, the combination of region, field of study, medium, degree of participation (positionality), and type of historical practice is diverse. This is why it is significant to conduct joint research based on a common interest in public history as a "commons of learning.
    Each co-researcher will work on his or her own individual research on research involving the above practices and report back to the joint research group to deepen the discussion.
