What Have We Gained and Lost Along the Way?: The Rise and Institutionalization of Environmental Sociology in Japan
The 3rd ISA Forum of Sociology
2016/07/13

Japanese environmental sociology is like a “black hole.” It constantly absorbs the world’s latest theoretical innovations so diligently but without emitting any research findings of its own, making itself unavailable to the world outside. It is because almost all its entire literature has been written in a minority language, Japanese.
But is that the only reason for being a “black hole”? The Japanese Association for Environmental Sociology (JAES) is the world’s largest academic association in the field of environmental sociology. It has been publishing the world’s very first journal dedicated to the discipline since 1995. Why, then, has the established field of study as such become a “black hole”? The language barrier does not seem to explain it all.
This paper, therefore, tries to make the ”black hole” visible, by portraying the present state of Japanese environmental sociology and the recent challenges it faces. By adapting the “institutional approach” by Philip Selznick, the author analyses the rise of the discipline in Japan in the 1970s-80s, focusing on what it has gained and lost through the process of growing into such an established field.
