This course aims to familiarize students with peculiarities of the Renaissance Italian art criticism, especially with its basic idea of the intimate relation between painting and poetry. For this purpose we use as our guide "Painting and Experience in Fifteenth Century Italy" written by M. Baxandall and examine some concrete cases of this view.

Throughout the semester students will also be working on an individual research project that focuses on the life and achievements of one European visitor of Japan. At the end of the course, each student will present their final findings at a mini-symposium.

Course Overview In this seminar, I prepare some structures or exercises to experience human relationships. Based on the history, concepts, aims, limitations of psychotherapy/counseling, we can learn real communication through these exercises and works. Basic human relationships can be a solid foundation for progressive counseling attitudes. There are many kinds of exercises created in the fields of existential and experiential counseling, such as Gestalt therapy, Sensitivity Training, T-group, and Structured Encounter Group. These structures themselves are not enough to experience real human relationships. You need to devote yourself to actual relationship to grow on your flexibility and powerful communication attitude. I also notice you to understand the risk of communication, such as privacy issues. In addition, you can learn how we apply these skills for psychological support for clients and their family, as well as visiting support, community approach.

These will be situated within current archaeological research activities in the Circum Japan Sea Area, especially in the northern part, which primarily includes the Russian Far East and the Japanese archipelago. The knowledge obtained will form the basis of our understanding of the diversity of prehistoric ethnic groups and archaeological cultures in North East Asia. We are foremost concerned with the emergence period of pottery through the Middle Ages. As it is important to correctly understand the political and social conditions of the partner country when promoting international academic exchange, modern history should be touched on where appropriate. We will examine how Japanese researchers and researchers from countries with different social backgrounds, historical views, and research methodologies sustain scholarly collaboration and conduct research.

Key words: archaeology, North East Asia, Russian Far East, Japanese Archipelago, environmental adaptation, excavation, mutual understanding
