     View Summary

    Since the 1990s, moving images archives have been widespread means of and Media and Film studies. This paper explores the urgency with which the moving images archival project in Japan has been approached, noting that similar archives in French and United States of America tend to be more substantial in regards to the collecting and conserving of materials, and the access of these materials to the public. This paper then examines the advantages and weakness of qualitative research methods by using the specific case study of television programs archives. Its strengths include an advanced objectivity, pertaining to the openness and accessibility of research materials. However there are issues regarding the limits of this conventional mode of analysis. This paper ultimately seeks to offer a way addressing this weakness in regards to research analyzing television program archives, specifically in regards to the relationship between image and sound, between subject and producer and to certain kinds of interviews. Discourse analysis is offered as an effective alternative in the construction of this alternate method.

  • What is Information? : To Release the Information from a framework of Intellectualism(<Special Section Article>Socio-Informatics)

    ITO Mamoru

    Journal of socio-informatics   1 ( 1 ) 3 - 19  2012.09

     View Summary

    What is information? Many researchers have been tried to find the answer to this question for a long time. Definitions of information given by them have something in common. One of them is that these definitions are defined from the viewpoint of intellectualism. In other words, Information processes are thought as "to transmit knowledge or data" But affection, passion and faith are communicated in information processes. The purpose of this paper is to release the concept of information from a framework of intellectualism. Therefore I would like to relate to information with body, genesis and movement to reveal the significance of affective function in information processes. It is very important for this subject to revaluate Jean-Gabriel Tarde's social theory, especially his concept of imitation and G.W. Leibniz's Monadologie which had a significant impact on Tarde's social theory. Finally I will stress such a necessity of extending the idea about information in order to make an analysis of information society more elaborately.

     View Summary

    The present paper aims to consider the cultural function of television as a technology for the creation of a public memory. The television system records past images, preserves them, and broadcasts various historical programs. A viewer owns the public memory jointly, through watching/consuming programs. However, the process of production and consumption of programs is linked with the exclusion of other historical memories from the public space. After all, the creation of public memories in depth is related to social power. Through the analysis in concrete terms of a series of programs of Project X and the second episode of the Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK
    Japan Broadcasting Corporation) series, Special Edition: Judging War, the relationship between the organization of public memories and social power is explored. Project X depicts the challenges of engineers of middle standing who initiated new industrial and technological developments in the 1960s and 1970s. Special Edition: Judging War is based on coverage of the Women’s International War Crimes Tribunal on Japan’s Military Sexual Slavery. This program was subjected to revision on the eve of its broadcast. What forms of expression were eliminated? These two programs should help us define more clearly what the Japanese media selects for incorporation into the public memory. © 2002 International Journal of Japanese Sociology.

    オリンピック報道に関しては開催関係者ならびにこの分野で研究を積み重ねてきた専門家に対する聞き取り調査を行い、一方で福島原発事故後の現状分析についてはメディア関係者や避難者・帰還者の聞き取り調査、現地調査を行う。また双方のテーマに共通した取り組みとして、報道内容の言説分析、ネットワーク上の情報にかんする統計学的調査等、多角的な方法を用いて分析を行い、2020年開催の東京オリンピック関連報道と福島原発事故関連報道がどう関連付けられているかの分析をおこない、現在の世論形成の特徴をメディア生態系の側から明らかにすることが、本研究の概要である。2019年4月より研究会をスタートし、以下の研究を行った。4月に第1回研究会を開催、2019年度の研究計画について議論、6月に第2回研究会、OurPlanetTV代表の白石草氏を迎えて「福島の現状に関する包括的な報告」を受けて議論した。7月21日に本研究会主宰の国際シンポジウム「祝祭資本主義とオリンピック」を開催した。約250名の国内外のオリンピック研究者と「反オリンピック」運動の各団体メンバーを交えて、報告者J.ボイコフ氏、山本敦久氏、いちむらみさこ氏、司会鵜飼哲による報告を基軸に議論を行った。オリンピック開催による、開催都市の財政悪化、監視の強化、ジェントリフィケーション、アスリートの意識変化など多様な論点が浮き彫りとなった。第3回は9月には研究会のメンバー全員で福島の現地調査を行った。第1は「東京電力廃炉資料館」の視察、第2は双葉町の汚染土回収と仮貯蔵地区の視察、第3は富岡の復興住宅に住む複数の住民への聞き取り調査、第4は南相馬市の小高中学校長への聞き取り調査、第5に飯舘町居住の農業従事者への聞き取り調査を実施した。震災・原発事故から9年が経過したが、低所得者への支援が不十分であること、復興住宅などの新しい生活空間のコミュニティ形成が進んでいないこと、小中学の児童数が減少のままであること、「ハコモノ」の建設が進むものの農業や小規模事業者への支援が手薄であること等、「復興」という名の下での厳しい現実が明らかとなった。この調査を踏まえて、第4回研究会では10月に福島の県立高校の教員、原発報道に長年携わってきたジャーナリストを迎えて、原発事故以降の福島の教育現場の状況、廃炉に向けた作業の進捗状況と課題について報告を受けて議論した。2020年2月には第5回研究会で有元健氏による「2020東京オリンピック」のメディア表象に関する分析を基に議論した。「研究実勢の概要」に記したように、国際シンポジウムと福島の現地調査を含む研究会を5回開始し、当初予定していた以上の活動と、次年度につながる研究成果を得ることができたと考えている。オリンピック開催時である2020年に予定しているメディア報道と世論形成のプロセスの分析、ならびに福島居住の市民の「福島の現状とオリンピック開催に関する調査」に向けた準備の年としてて2019年度の研究計画を立てた。具体的には、福島の現状把握のためにこの問題に詳しい専門家からの聞き取り/講演、オリンピックが抱える諸問題に関する共通認識の形成であるが、その課題は研究会の開催を通して遂行できており。順調に研究が進展した。ただし、ソーシャルメディアによる情報の拡散と世論形成への意義をどのような方法で、いかなる視点から分析を行うのかに関する議論が不十分であり、今後、この領域に対するアプローチの方法を検討する必要があるとともに、マスメディア報道とソーシャルメディアとの関係についても理論的検討を行っていきたいと考えている。2020年のオリンピック開催を前提に研究計画を立てていたが、開催が21年に延期となり、大幅に計画を変更せざるを得ないこととなった。そのため、今年度は、福島の「復興」の状況に関する調査に力点を置いて取り組むこととする。第1は、復興住宅などのコミュニティ形成にむけた課題を把握するために数度の聞き取り調査を行う、第2は、福島県立医大の研究者の協力も得ながら、福島在住の大学生に対するアンケート調査(福島の現状に関する認識、健康被害に関する認識、復興事業に関する評価、オリンピック開催に対する評価など)を行う、第3は、自主避難者に対する聞き取り調査(生活・経済の現状、帰還への意向等)を重点的に行う。しかしながら、コロナウィルス感染の拡大と収束の時期が予測できない状況にあって、福島の現地調査が行えるかどうかも未定であり、今後の推移を見守りながら、研究を慎重に行っていく予定である。さらに加えて、オリンピック開催が延期されたことによって、オリンピックそれ自体、東京開催に関する市民の意識も微妙に変化していることが予測される。そこで、この変化を明らかにするために、数量調査が可能かどうか(次年度に大規模調査を予定しており予算面で可能かどうかの検討が必要)の検討を行いつつ、前向きに対応することを考える。いずれにしても大きな変更を余儀なくされており、コロナウィルス感染の拡大状況を見極めながら研究を遂行することになる

    The NNN Document series produced by 29 stations nationwide in the NNN(Nippon News Network) is the documentary program with the longest history in Japanese television. Since the start in 1970, the number of broadcasts so far has reached about 2,200. These are valuable records of Japanese contemporary history and broadcast history. In this research, in order to take over these records to the nextgeneration, we digitally archived all the programs, and created a detailed program database, under full cooperation with NNN stations. We also made use of these to explore how television recorded the turning point of postwar Japan. The result will be published by the University of Tokyo Press in 2019 as "NNN Document Chronicle (Tentative)"

    The aim of this research is to clarify the transformation of discourse space after Traditionally, newspapers and television have been responsible for the production and circulation of public sphere. However, The structure of the discourse space has undergone significant transformation by constituting a media environment where public citizens can freely give opinions.Research shows that the material characteristics of social media as mobile media are more deepening the link with user's physicality, becoming "affective network" to inspire emotions, As individual information has the same value as "exchange value", I pointed out that environments that can spread fake news, rumors, and emotions as information also have a negative impact on the public space

    How can we develop the public in the media in the rise of multi-cultural societies, by applying the concept of 'cultural citizenship'? It can be summed up as follows; first while the representation of foreign residents in Japan are recognizable to a certain extent in the mass media, in particular, television, most of them are of celebrities or sports players; those of ordinary foreign residents are still limited. Second, the media representation of Chinese or Korean residents can be rarely found; considerable racist and discriminative discourses are sometimes seen instead. Third, foreign residents are not primarily considered as media audiences. Fourth, independent films are important as they show a variety of their representations. Fifth and finally, it may take a long time to accept the idea of 'cultural citizenship' in Japanese society

Above all, the TV news drew a Minamata Disease Affair as an event to symbolize this time.However, in the Minamata Disease Affair news to construct the struggle of "Minamata" characterizing the times of "the protest" in media environment, as for the media discourse to talk about the historical transformation of the social movement enough, it is not formed.In addition, by the news, "salvation" and "the indemnity" of the patient were placed for equivalent relations, and "the acknowledgement" of the patient came to be said with "indemnity" more that it was equivalent.The TV documentary draws the Minamata Disease Affair as the struggle of "Minamata" in media environment, too.

The issue is how what is cut and lost in the process of multilayered changes in the post-war Japan has supported the post empirical order in Eastern Asia. In pursuing the analysis of this, we could connect the global military and political geopolitics to people's feelings and desires and the experience and meaning in daily life, not in the dualistic theory separating superstructure and substructure, micro and macro, text and context.Second, in order to study the culture of American policy in East Asia, we made the digital archive system of the CIE films which was recently discovered in Kiryu City Library. We have had several research meetings on CIE Films.Third, we have integrated the several digital archives administrated by variant universities which contain the materials concerning the theme, War and Media

    For that Minamata disease was caused by CHISSO, until it was authorized by a government in 1968, at Minamata disease incident report, the discourses that repressively represented the sufferers of Minamata disease and their families were formed. Just as a harm responsibility of CHISSO Minamata Factory wasn't made clear, MIMAIKIN-KEIYAKU (a consolatory money contract) that tried to settle compensation to the sufferers and their families with monetary payment only to be scant, was concluded in December in 1959. Since that, the discourses to talk of the sufferers and their families as existences to receive monetary payment, and the narrative to tell that Minamata disease incident came to an end were formed in media environment.The result, Minamata disease incident didn't occur now, as an event at a media environment.For Economic White Book since 1956, a discourse of economic nationalism that Japanese independence and an international position are established by economic development was formed, the discourse that was formed in Minamata disease incident report also showed a similar ideological characteristic. And furthermore, in a discourse of such a report, a characteristic of ideology of ar after the war Japanese high economic growth that economic development indeed settles various contradiction by that appears.The labor dispute that occurred in CHISSO Minamata Factory in 1962 also in large way was reported as considering that it is an affair that contradiction of an economic policy to persue economic development came to the surface. However, a discourse to report a dispute like this made the scoop in 1963, to disclose that a cause material of Minamata disease was included in drainage of CHISSO Minamata Factory, latent. In other words, a report to be concerning a labor dispute as a contradiction caused economic development obstructed a formation of a discourse that investigated a harm responsibility of CHISSO that was one of a powerful enterprise that supported economic development in those days

     View Summary

    We want to conclude this survey by drawing the main issues. The objects of analysis are linguistic and audio-visual texts of evening news programs and night news programs in commercial broadcasting. To approach to the texts we adopt critical discourse analysis and multi-mode analysis.1 A large part of television news programs is clearly designed as mixture of entertainment and information. So what is involved here can be thought of as a shift in the internal structure of the television, relaxation of the boundary between public affairs and entertainment in television. This shift can be seen in more general terms as part of an intensified "marketization of the television".2 We emphasize Conversationalization in information programs or news show in Japan. It is indeed a hallmark in contemporary social life and the particular structural properties of mass-media communication involved the contradiction between the public nature of media production and the private nature of media consumption. Two connected questions about the tensions and tendencies we have highlighted are related to power relations within the social system. There is an ambivalence in the case of Conversationalization. It cannot be simply dismissed as ideological, indded ofen is, but it does nevertheless represent some degree of cultural democratization

It is essential for he best theory of development today to pay attention or network society is rising in the process of Empire like globalization. Silicon Valley model is very important for today's social innovation, but the Empire like globalization is so problematic. Authoritarian States are definitely against the rise of network society. But state can still take very important role in development, if it is radically democratized. Therefore the combination between Silicon valley model and national development model which came from experiences of Scandinavian and Nordic countries.Empirically this study dealt with the Japanese national, regional and local government's policies and plans on information or network society. This study pointed out outstanding examples of these policies and plans. This study also analyzed the role of informatization and network in Okinawa prefecture and Hokkaido. Furthermore this study clarified that environmental issue, welfare issue, gender and age issue are closely related with informatization and network. In the nutshell, to solve these issues will make local, regional and global society possible

So we held hearing on the issues of Kawagoe-city from leaders at old town community, stuffs of government and more young persons who had been re-organizing new community net-work (ex."Kuranokai"). In 1998 , we carried out a questionnaire survey at old town district "KYU-JUKKATYO". In1999 , comparative questionnaire survey was conducted in new suburban district "KASUMIGASEKI-KITA". And in 2000, we conducted group-interviews from the community residents and neighborhood groups.The research results showed a trend towards increasing of the people using multiple-media instruments . The another trend is an extension of the residents that have no connections with community..In 1999, we reported a part of the result of questionnaire surveys at Japan Society for Studies in Journalism and Mass communication, and at Japan Society for Socio-Information Studies.

     本研究の目的は、2011年度から2012年度にかけて行った「1980年代における出版・活字文化の変容に関する実証的研究」を発展させるかたちで、考察の時期を1970年代にまで広げて、学術出版活動における編集者の位置、役割がいかなるものであったか、さらに高度消費社会へと日本社会が大きく変化する中で、編集者自身がどのような問題関心の下で、いかに執筆者との関係をつくりながら、知の生産を行っていたのか、を検討することにあった。1970年代まで考察の範囲を拡大したのは、編集者へのインタビューを通じて、戦後の学問的知の変容、読者層による知の受容や消費の変化はすでに1970年代に根差しており、1970年代から1980年代にかけての通時的な射程から考察する必要性が浮かび上がってきたことによる。 こうした課題を遂行するために、本研究では、長年にわたり書評紙『週刊読書人』の編集長を務め、学術出版の歴史的経緯に詳しい武秀樹氏、月刊『ローリングストーン』(日本版)や季刊『is』(ポーラ文化研究所)の編集長を務めた七字英輔氏、さらに『美術手帖』の編集者として様々な特集号を企画した三上豊氏にインタビュー調査を行うとともに、せりか書房の編集長である船橋純一郎氏にも再度のインタビューを行った。 以上の編集者のインタビューから明らかになった諸点は次のようなものである。いずれの編集者にも共通に抱かれていたのは、仮説として想定したように、1970年代の半ばに、アカデミズムの知の変容とともに読者層の関心や志向の変化が徐々に顕在化し、新たな出版企画を出していかざるを得ない状況が生まれたということである。七字氏によれば、政治的な主張を含みつつもポップな色彩感と大胆な写真構成からなる『ローリングストーン』日本語版は若者世代のライフスタイルの変化を先取りするものであった。また伝統的な絵画や日本画の紹介を中心にしてきた『芸術新潮』とは異なり、現代美術に特化した編集の方針を貫いてきた『美術手帖』も制作者にための雑誌からより広範な読者(美術館の拡大に伴う絵画鑑賞者の急激な増加に対応している)ための紙面構成へと変化した、と述べた三上氏の発言もこの変化を裏付けるものであった。特に、『ぴあ』に代表される細分化した「情報」提供する雑誌、既存の「知識」を提供する雑誌、これらとは一線を画した「ガイド」として「美術手帖」を位置付けた三上氏の発言は、この時期の出版・活字文化の変容と多元化を象徴的に言い表している。このような雑誌文化の変化は、その後、学術出版の分野にも通底することになる。

     2000年度の調査時点では、台北で、従来の地上波放送5局をはじめ、音楽専門局、総合編制局、アニメ専門局、映画専門局、日本の番組専門局、宗教専門局、CNNやHBOやESPNなどの欧米系衛星テレビ局を含めて、90チャンネル以上視聴可能である。香港資本が出資するTVBSG局や2000年からSONYが出資した超視に象徴されるように、現在の台湾のテレビメディアは、台湾/欧米/日本/香港のメディア資本が複雑に交錯する経済/政治的環境のもとで、日本語/英語とともに「国語」たる北京語、さらに放送用語として近年使用されはじめてきたミン南語など、多様な言語が飛び交い、異質な文化が重層化する、複合的なメディア空間を作り上げている。基幹的テレビ局である台視(TTV)、中視(CTV)、華視(CTS)の3局は、「国民党寄り」「保守的」とみなされており、とりわけ「娯楽番組」は面白くないとの評価を受けている。他方で、CATVが浸透してからは、番組のスタイルが「ソフト化」したとの評価もある。CATV各局は、チャンネルが濫立し過当競争の状態にあると認識されており、他社との差異化をどうはかり、独自性をいかに発揮するかが課題である。放送内容に関しては、送り手側/受け手側ともに、暴力場面や性的描写が多いことに危惧している。日本の番組に関しては、欧米の番組と比較して、年代を超えて「親しみやすい」「近しい感じ」と受け止められている一方で、「裸のシーンが多い」とのマイナスの評価もある。特に若年層では、日本のアニメについて、「緻密さ」「画面の美しさ」「ストーリー性」で高く評価されていることがわかった。さらに、日本の番組については、その評価が、年代差よりも、「外省人」「本省人」という差異によってかなり異なる、との意見があったことは、大変興味深い。今後の調査で検証すべき点である。 今後は、今回の調査をふまえ、CATV各社の経営体質、外国資本との関係、自主制作番組の割合、制作理念、北京語とミン南語の併用についての局の考え方などより詳しく解明することが必要である。また、多角的な報道がなされていると視聴者が認識しているか、外国の番組とりわけ日本のドラマ番組や情報番組を視聴者がどのように受容/消費しているか等々、オーディエンスの視点からの調査を実施することが、台湾の文化的アイデンティティを考える場合、不可欠であるだろう。
