Subject of research
Ethnological Study of International Population Movement in Oceanian Microstates  Population movement,Microstates  オセアニア島嶼国家では、近年労働力の海外流出が進み、現在総人口の半分を超す人々が環太平洋先進諸国に移住している場合もある。彼らの送金は本国社会に大きなインパクトをもたらし、人口構成、家族構成などに大きな影響を及ぼしている。各社会を専門とする人類学者がそれぞれに調査を行い、比較研究する。  1992-1995 
Anthropological Study of Colonialism in Oceania  colonialism, administration, government, Pacific, historical experience  西洋との接触後、キリスト教の布教活動、植民地化、現代の世界的な政治経済システムへの編入などにより、固有の社会と文化の変容を余儀なくされてきた。しかしながら、一方的に弱者の立場にあったわけではない。西欧の技術や知識の応用、土着主義運動、独立運動や近代国家の形成を実現してきた。この歴史過程を各社会を専門とする人類学者たちにより共同研究するのが、この研究の手段である。  1996-1999 
Art and Identity among the Pacific Island Nations  Art,Pacific,Island Nations  4年に一度開催される太平洋芸術祭は2000年大会で8回を数える。最も後発地域であったオセアニア島嶼社会の独立に合わせ、太平洋芸術の振興と芸術を通じての交流を行う場として設定された祭典である同芸術祭において、各国の国家統合、アイデンティティや文化表象を個別社会の専門家たちがそれぞれに研究するのが目的である。  1999-2001 
Ethnicity among the Oceanic Societies  ethnicity, identity, indigenous peoples, migration, globalization, population movement, Pacific, Oceania  国立民族学博物館地域研究企画交流センターの共同研究。 エスニシティに関する総合的な研究はオセアニアではこれまであまり行われてこなかった。石器時代から近代化したばかりのパプアニューギニア、単一民族の小さな島嶼社会であるポリネシアなどにおいては、エスニシティといった近代的概念は意味のないものであったかもしれない。しかし、近年ここにも世界大で生じている現象がグローバリゼーションとともに一挙に押し寄せる結果となっている。都市化によって成立する複合的な社会成層やスラムの問題(メラネシアの諸都市、グアム等)、多発する民族紛争(フィジー、ソロモン諸島、パプアニューギニア、西イリアン)、マイノリティ化する先住民とその権利回復運動(オーストラリア、ハワイ、タヒチ)、移民現象によって成立しつつある環太平洋先進国の移民社会や新たなエスニシティの生成(ポリネシア・ミクロネシアからの移民)等々をあげることができよう。それぞれの研究者が持ち寄る事例を検討しながら、これら現代オセアニアのダイナミックな現象をさまざまな角度から比較分析して、オセアニアにおけるエスニシティの特性を抽出することを目的としている。  2003-2006 
Historical anthropology of race relationship in the colonial era of Oceania  colonial administration, New Zealand, Samoa, Oceania, race, ethnicity, identity  植民地社会での人種のカテゴリーがどのように制度化され、どのように運用されたかを歴史人類学の視点から研究することを主旨としている。異なる人種には異なる権利付与が行われたが、それはもっぱら社会経済的な理由によるものであり、社会秩序を維持するためのものであった。通常人種という概念が生物学的なものであるとされるのに対し、この研究は、現実には人種カテゴリーを構成するものが、社会経済的な要因を強く含むことを立証しようとしている。本研究では、西サモアを中心に研究が行われるが、さらに太平洋の他の植民地社会との比較も視野にいれて、研究をすすめる予定である。  2004-2008 
Anthropological Study of Glocalization and National Culture among the Pacific Island Nations  Pacific, Oceania, globalization, national culture, identity, migration, postcolonial situation, development, tourism  これまで詳細な研究がほとんど行われてこなかったグローバリゼーションのローカル化、すなわちグローカリゼーションに焦点を当てることで、現在グローバリゼーションの波に飲み込まれながらも、新たな社会の編成や国民国家の創生を模索し続けているオセアニア島嶼国における生活戦略を明らかにすることを目的としている。それぞれの社会を専門とする文化人類学者が、共同で比較研究を行う。  2004-2008 
Emigrants and their home: Identity of the globalized Samoan world and their reciprocity  migration, identity, transnationalism, reciprocity, globalization, art, Samoa, New Zealand  Samoan Islanders started to migrate after WWII to the Pacific-rim countries to form migrant communities which, in total, make a population larger than that one at the homelands. Ceremonial exchanges practiced in and out of Samoa so often make a great contribution of cash flow by the migrant Samoans to the homelands. Although the custom is a burden to the migrants, the reciprocity of money and ceremonial valuables is something to make a Samoan identity at the moment. On the other hand, many of the migrant artists critisize the custom because they are able to relate themselves to their own identity by art activities.  2008/04/01-2010/03/31 
Globalized reciprocity: The new development of ceremonial exhcnage in Samoa  Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand, cultural anthropology, reciprocity, transnationalism, globalization, migration, cultural policy,  The fine mats made after the WWII became coarcer and coarcer. The revival of the real fine fine mat creation was started by the government since 2003. Behind this movement existed the reevaluation of female work and at the same time the income generation policy for rural women. On the one hand, the coarse small fine mats have disappearred from the ceremonial sceanes and the fine mats in high quality were stored in closets of each family, while on the other hand, the large coarce fine mats became the center of the ceremonies. Samoan ceremonial exchanges were globalized since the Samoans made transnational migration and have functions to integrate the global Samoan world.  2011/04/01-2014/03/31

Globalized Reciprocity: Development of Fine Mat Exchange in Samoan Transnationalism  Matori Yamamoto  2011-2014  Other  Other  The production of authentic fine mats used in Samoan ceremonial exchange was revived in 1990s. Before that, rough 'fine mats' had been mostly produced. The fine mat policy was to evaluate women's role in the society and to give women a measure of income generation. Nevertheless, special large mats as rough as abandoned 'fine mats' in quality were mainly used. In the transnational Samoan world, the ceremonial exchange is still functional in connecting Samoan people in different communities.
