  • Lost and Gained in Translation: The Role of the ‘American Model’ in the Institution-Building of a Japanese University Press

     View Summary

    This paper presents a case study of the early history of the University of Tokyo Press (UTP), which was founded in 1951 as the first university press affiliated with a national university in Japan. We concentrate on how the American model of university publishing was used in inventive and creative ways, not only to build up and manage the UTP but also to create and solidify the emerging institution of university press publishing in Japan. Drawing upon the ideas of Scandinavian institutionalist school of organizational analysis, we contend that a certain ‘translation’ of an existing organizational model often constitutes an integral part of institutional entrepreneurship. We also argue that the process of institutional translation is inseparably related to the UTP members’ search for workable missions and organizational identity within financial and institutional constraints. The UTP case suggests that to be a successful institutional entrepreneur, one has to be an effective rhetor as well.

  • The Consciousness of Japanese Youth and the Design of Future Society in the Risk Society:The Third Survey of High School Students Based on Questionnaire

    Project Year :


     View Summary

    We conducted high school students survey based on questionnaire every 6 years since 2001. In 2013 the third survey was carried out in three prefectures; Fukuoka(7 schools), Osaka(9 schools) and Tokyo(10 schools).We collected the data of 6092 students. Features of the third high school students survey can be reduced to following two points. Firstly, by carrying out survey in Tokyo as well as Fukuoka and Osaka, we tried to bring the collected data to be representative of the Japanese society . Secondly, in light of the Great East Japan Earthquake, we analyzed the consicousness of high school students about the role of science and technology in society.The results of data analysis are as follows, (1) strengthening of conformity to the norm, (2)progress of the conservatism in political attitude, (3) The approval rating for nuclear power generation of science course students is higher than that of the other course students. These are interesting and suggestive findings of our survey

  • Cross-border Businessmen in East Asia: Comparative Research on the Formation of Image their Image on Visiting Countries

     View Summary

    In this year, or final year of the three-year-project, we conducted questionnaire survey of local managers working in Japanese companies in Korea and Taiwan to compare the results, using the same questionnaire we used last year in mainland China. At the same time, some investigators analyzed the data we got last year so that our comparative study would be more fruitful and suggestive.All the investigators, including foreign collaborative researchers, got together in 5th to 7th of January, 2003, to talk about each paper.As a result of our analysis, we could get interesting findings below, (l) Chinese local employees evaluate foreign (namely Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese) expatriates based on their emotional judgment which is formed by their way of communication with them. (2) Even though Korean are said to have "anti-Japanese" feeling compared with Taiwanese, our research on local managers in Japanese companies in Korea and Taiwan revealed that there is no clear difference between Korean's image on Japanese and those of Taiwanese partly because they have same type of communication with the Japanese expatriates which have been formed for a long time of their service in Japanese companies. (3) "Power game" (which language they choose in communicating, which side has initiative in management, and so on) is a crucial factor in characterizing each cross-border businessman's behavior and attitude.Moreover, those interesting facts like (l) culturally intimate China and Taiwan also cannot be free from perception gap, (2) Korean businessmen's trust toward Chinese partner is lower than Japanese partner, and (3) Chinese local employee's evaluation toward Japanese expatriates is lower than Korean and Taiwanese expatriates were revealed.Our research team will rewrite each paper based on the discussion at the meeting in January and publish a book on cross-border businessmen in East Asia within a year

  • Comparative Research on Values-The Asian Values Study

     View Summary

    More and more attention is being given to understanding distinctively "Asian values" While politics, economics, and the social sciences appeal to these values on a regular basis, there is as yet no full-scale study of the subject comparable to what one finds in Europe for the past twenty years. To meet the need, the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture set out in 1996 to explore the possibility of collaborating with the team of scholars overseeing the European Values Study to produce a similarly-structured survey for use in Japan and other Asian countries. The European Values Study is a comprehensive survey covering over 400 items, designed to test for values in the domains of religion, work, family, and politics. In dose consultation with the European Values System Study Group, a decision was made to adapt about two-thirds of the questionnaire used in the European survey, and to add other questions specifically designed to test for what are commonly considered Asian values. The resulting instrument was used to conduct a survey in Japan in June 2001, with a random sample of 1000 nationwide, weighted for age and sex. The researchers spent much of the following year analyzing the results of the survey and working on writing reports on the results. An International Conference of Values Research was held at Nanzan University from January 30 to February 2,2004. In addition to a representative of the European Values Study Group, two researchers who have been involved in the World Values Study, and a researcher planning an African Values Study, along with researchers from the Philippines, South Korea, and Taiwan attended the conference. The conference was successful in strengthening our ties with other values research groups, and well as preparing to conduct our Asian Values Study in other countries in Asia

  • Institutional Analysis of Scholarly Communication

     View Summary

    We have been engaged in a comparative case study of a number of scholarly publishers in Japan in order to examine the inter-institutional relationships between the academic world and the publishing world. The following are four major findings of our research1. Inherent Dilemma of Scholarly Publishers.We found that two sets of contradictions are built into the activities of scholarly publishers i.e., culture vs. commerce, craft vs. bureaucracy.2. Internal Contradiction amonu Organizational Identities.The above contradictions can be meaningfully conceptualized as contradictions among four types of organizational identities cultural institution, business, craft, bureaucracy.3. Organizational Identities and Institutional Logics.The multiplicity of organizational identities is closely related to the multiplicity of organizational fields or social worlds to which a scholarly publisher belongs.4.Multiple Organizational Identities and Decision-making Process.There exists a close relationship between the decision-making__process as to "which books to publish" and relative weights among the four types of organizational identities.A scholarly publisher is a gatekeeper or a "boundary spanner" that provides bridges among the multiple organizational fields, including worlds of academicians, of readers, and of business firms. While a publisher often suffers from cross pressures of different institutional logics characteristic of the social worlds, it also sometimes serves as an institutional entrepreneur who contributes to the reconfiguration of the scholarly communication
