李賢晙准教授(韓国語担当)が第42回サントリー学芸賞を受賞されました!

 11月16日、公益財団法人サントリー文化財団によって、第42回サントリー学芸賞の受賞者が発表されました。そして、わが言語センターの韓国語担当教員である李賢晙先生が、芸術・文学部門の賞を受賞されたのです!サントリー学芸賞は日本で出版された優秀な学術研究書に対して贈られる代表的な学術賞で、主に若手研究者に贈られるものです。これを受賞することは研究者にとって大変な名誉であり、本学にとってもまさに大きな快挙と言えるでしょう。

 受賞作の『「東洋」を踊る崔承喜(チェ・スンヒ)』(勉誠出版、2019)は、李先生の2015年度の博士学位論文(東京大学大学院・総合文化研究科・超域文化科学専攻)を基に、平成30年度科学研究費助成事業(研究成果公開促進費ー学術図書)の支援を得て出版されたものです。日本の比較文学研究の第一人者で、今回の賞の選考委員でもある沼野充義氏が素晴らしい選評を書いておられるので、一部をご紹介しましょう。

 「崔承喜(1911-69)といっても、いまでは知る人は少なくなったかもしれない。しかし、戦前の日本では帝国日本を代表する朝鮮出身の舞踊家として一世を風靡し、日本語読みされたサイショウキという名前は全国にとどろき渡っただけでなく、世界での公演旅行を通じて国際的にも高く評価された。本書はその崔承喜が日本で活躍した1926年から45年の期間に焦点を当て、膨大な資料を掘り起こしてまとめた労作である。(…)著者、李賢晙氏のとった方法は極めて明確なもので、自伝・小説・同時代の日本の文化人の批評といったテクストから、崔承喜が登場する映画、写真、絵画まで、当時の日本の文化・芸術の世界にほとんど遍在していた崔承喜のイメージを広範囲にわたって分野横断的に調査し、一つ一つ丁寧に分析していくのである。」

SUT INTERNATIONAL STAFF TRAINING WEEK

Daniela Caluianu
SUT INTERNATIONAL STAFF TRAINING WEEK
For three years, I have been conducting virtual exchanges with the Silesian University of Technology (SUT) in Gliwice, POLAND. I knew where to find Gliwice on the map, but I had no idea what a delightful city it was until last fall when my virtual exchange partner, Prof. Iwona Seta-Dabrowska, invited me to the SUT International Staff Training Week.
The concept of an ‘International Staff Training Week’ was new to me and I did not know what to expect. This made my enjoyment of the event even higher. There were tutorials, workshops, project presentations, social mixers: a great opportunity to learn new things, to meet colleagues from around the world and exchange ideas in a relaxed and and pleasant atmosphere.
This year, the pandemic made it impossible to travel and the International Staff Training Week was held online. I had the pleasure of attending again and, although I did understand a little why our students yearn for the return to face-to-face classes- yes, it is fun to talk to people over a cup of coffee or to meet with them for dinner when the day’s program is finished- I managed to have almost as good a time as last year. I sat through lectures, workshops and social gatherings for hours for five days in a row and I was neither bored nor tired even though Gliwice is seven hours away and I had my classes during the day.
————————————————————————————————
I have no doubt that organizing such an even, on campus or online, is not easy, but it’s definitely worth it. I have learned so much during these days from tips on how to use online resources to creative ideas for projects and many other things too. Thank you organizers, you did a wonderful job! I wish we could have an International Staff Training Week at OUC. Even a small one would be nice.

VIRTUAL EXCHANGE OUC-SUT

VIRTUAL EXCHANGE OUC-SUT
Yesterday, October 26, was the first day of our new Virtual Exchange project with the Silesian University of Technology, Poland. The topic of the project is innovation. Students in English Composition 1 will collaborate with their peers from SUT to create and advertise an innovative product based on a Japanese gadget. Yesterday, we met online and the OUC students gave a short presentation about Japan. I am looking forward to the next meeting.

The 4th International Virtual Exchange Conference

Daniela Caluianu

 

The 4th International Virtual Exchange Conference (IVEC4) opened on September 14th at Newcastle University in the UK. I attended the Opening Ceremony and joined the Rapid Mix that followed- a good opportunity to get to know some of the other participants. I had the chance to speak with colleagues from South Africa, Mexico, the Netherlands, Venezuela, France, the United States and Britain. From my home in Sapporo. Due to the pandemic, the conference is held online.
We are going through tragic and frightening times when millions of lives around the globe have been thrown in disarray.  It is hard to find positive aspects in the current situation. In spite of this, there are  voices talking about the pandemic as an opportunity to rethink our way of life and change it for the better. This hopeful message can be frequently encountered at IVEC4. Many of the speakers express the idea that, for universities in particular, the disruption of the regular activity  is also an chance to innovate, to carry out the promise of digital technologies and to transform education making it better suited to the challenges of the 21st century.  I have no doubt that the conference will be a great success.

E122B Zoom class had a distinguished guest from Sweden

Daniela Caluianu

 

On July 9th, our English 122B Zoom class had a distinguished guest from Sweden: Alastair Creelman, e-learning specialist at Linnaeus University in Kalmar https://lnu.se/en/staff/alastair.creelman/ . Alastair very graciously accepted to answer our questions. And not only that! After an hour-long Q&A session on how to cope with online learning, he invited us to a walk through the beautiful village Ljungbyholm, 15 km south of Kalmar. Another opportunity to ask questions and learn new things. More on the walk in a future posting. For now, here are some of Alastair’s very useful tips on how to make most of online learning, how to avoid falling behind or become stressed. For more online learning wisdom, check out Alastair’s English blog on education and technology at https://acreelman.blogspot.com. THANK YOU, Alastair!

What are you Reading? #2

Shawn Clankie
Professor of Applied Linguistics
I’m reading Shane The Lone Ethnographer by Sally Campbell-Galman.
This is a great book for students, particularly graduate students, who want to do field research. The book is written in cartoon form and is very easy to understand. Students who use this book will be better researchers and will write better. I would encourage my colleagues to read this as well, both as a refresher and so they can recommend it to their students. Your job as supervisor will be easier as a result.
A copy of this book in the university library.

I’m reading JAPANAMERICA: How Japanese Pop Culture Has Invaded The US by Roland Kelts

 

This is a great book on the manga and anime industries in Japan, and how they are succeeding (and failing) in the US market. It is a good book for anyone who would like to work in these industries.

 

Roland Kelts spoke in the English Lecture Series at Otaru University of Commerce in 2017. You can see his talk here. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P6L1ifbBfnA

This book is available in the university library.
