Course Overview As a sub-discipline of humanities, linguistics seeks to uncover human nature by focusing on language. It tries to answer the fundamental question of what constitute grammar as it is internalized in all human beings and how it is related to the grammar of each individual language. It also explores the relationship between language and its speakers who use it. These questions must be addressed by dealing with empirical data from diverse languages upon which linguistic theories are based. This class examines some of such fundamental questions and different approaches of linguistics whereby students will be able to have a basic understanding of linguistics and have a further interest in this field of study.

Course Overview This course offers for students who hope teacher training courses. The influence that the Chinese classics gave to Japanese classics is great. Through this class, the understanding of Japanese classics and Japanese culture will also be improved.
Class time provides Honcho Monzui (a Collection of Chinese Language Prose and Poetry Written in Japan),and using reading Chinese texts in Japanese, examines Chinese texts and its annotation, and then discuss the content of the texts.
Through this class, I hope that students will not only continue to develop their reading skill, but also create the interest in Chinese culture.

Course Overview A number of Korean paintings of both Buddhist and secular subjects have been preserved over centuries in Japanese archipelago.These paintings of peninsular origin present an indispensable base when constructing the narrative history of Korean painting, because they contain most of the extant works from the Goryeo and the first half of the Joseon period.In general, these paintings have been identified as Chinese in pre-modern Japan with a name of famous painters as Wu Daozi, Zhang Sigong, Li Longmian,MaoYi, and so on, as a result of traditional Japanese connoisseurship and viewing system for the imported paintings from the Muromachi period onwards.One may evaluate in negative their lives as migrants with ambiguous national origin, however,we cannot ignore the fact that misattribution to famous Chinese painters have made possible for these imported objects to remain until today with high value and sometimes they even have functioned as a canon in creative reproduction of Japanese arts as in case of Ito Jakuchu. With this in mind, the lecture illuminates the diaspora of the paintings of peninsular origin with more positive concerns. Their border-crossing or transcultural journey and the reception history over the times and spaces –from their birth in the original contexts, their moving to Japan over sea, their evaluation as Chinese paintings, the circulation to the West, the discovery of their peninsular origin, their returning and exhibition at home, and so on–should be discussed with a descriptionopened to both local and global contexts, and as aconsequence it willbeproved to be newtype of narrative that relativizesthe narrow and institutionalized narrativeof national art history.

Course Overview This course examines the history of the administrative system and chancery practices in pre-modern Islamicate West Asia and Iran. Since the emergence of Muslim rule in West Asia in the 7th century, the chancery practices for official correspondence and fiscal administration developed in Arabic language under the early Islamic dynasties, the Umayyads (641 -750) and the Abbasids (750 -1258), and were succeeded to later local Muslim dynasties in various Islamicate regions. The secretaries (katibs) who were responsible for administrative affairs were recognized as literary elites (people of pen) in the traditional theory of Islamic government, and their expertise in chancery practices was regarded as one of traditional sciences (‘ilm) and had close connection not only with administrative affairs but also with literary education (adab) and social norms.
In this course, students study the history of administrativ systems of the Islamic dynasties in Iran and Persian chancery practices which has developed under the influence Arabic chancery practices, examining Persian historical sources concerning with chancery practices.

Course Overview In the Qing dynasty, the "Mandarin" Chinese was used in public places such as courts and in commercial spaces. However, since the language was spoken orally, it was seldom recorded in Chinese documents, and there was little clue to what kind of linguistic situation it was. During Qing dynasty, interpreters called “tongshi”were active in Ryukyu and Nagasaki, the "Mandarin" textbooks they used are valuable materials that convey the language facts. In this class, we will study the historical position of the group of interpreyers and the textbooks they have learned and decipher the facts of the "Mandarin" Chinese at the time.

Course Overview This course aims to provide an overview of Samuel Taylor Coleridge [1772-1834], a major English Romantic poet ‘of pure imagination’ and remarkable forerunner of modern literary criticism. After an overall introduction, we will study his life briefly, then consider his achievements as a poet by closely reading his major poems divided into four stages: 1 Sublime poems, 2 Conversation poems, 3 Supernatural poems, and 4 Later poems, and finally conclude this lecture by touching on his relationship of influence with his contemporary Romantic poets as well as with various earlier and later writers. Attention will be paid to the sociopolitical situations of that age, among others, the French Revolution, which the poet expected so much from at first and got disillusioned with later, and the Industrial Revolution. This course will be centred on lecture but participants will be expected to read the poems dealt with on their own beforehand and express their interpretations and opinions of them in class.

Course Overview  After the mid-20th century, the family relations of Japan, among other things the parent-child relationship ,have greatly changed. Because a family is an imminent group, it has been often done in the subject of novel and movie. In addition, family sociology and local sociology have considered the social characteristic and the background about a family.
By this lecture, I argue about a family and society from a sociological viewpoint in a work of Yasujiro Ozu picturized after World War II and the rapid economic growth period, in a work of Hirokazu Koreeda picturized in the 21st century.
