Profile 【 Display / hide

  • In my research, I go back and forth between the Andean Societies of Abya Yala (Latin America) and Yaun mosir (Hokkaido) to follow the contemporary lived dynamics of the indigenous languages (Aymara, Quechua, and Aynu), and also to delve into the rich and complex world of their oral literature. My other research themes include how the indigenous peoples of Qullasuyu (Bolivia) and Peru resisted and adapted to the political and development processes, as well as how written literature has interacted with and responded to the oral literature in these societies. We organize with students study groups on Quechua and Euskera(Basque) language at SFC, and I collaborate in a citizen college with a course on reading the Huarochiri Manuscript, a Quechua registry of myths and practices dating from the Spanish colonial period.

    これは、以前公刊した表題の散文説話(藤田護(2018)「金成マツ筆録ノートの口承文学テクストの原文対訳及び解釈――散文説話『六人の山子(iwan yamanko)』」中川裕編『アイヌ語の文献学的研究(3)』千葉大学大学院人文公共学府研究プロジェクト報告書、第325号)について、データ化しやすいように行ごとの対訳形式へと形式を改め、これに行番号を振ったものである。元の稿にあった考察や、原ノートの翻刻は割愛する。また、タイトルを若干改め、後々の整理のためにタイトルに番号を振った。元の稿の原文対訳に対する修正も、今後は本稿において施すこととする。誤りではないかと思われる点を見つけた方は、藤田に一報を頂けると感謝します。
