As the first stage in a larger project comparing mother-daughter relationships in Japan and Hong Kong, we conducted focus group discussions with mothers and adult daughters. Our sample included heterosexually-identified and lesbian-identified adult daughters, and mothers of heterosexually-identified daughters and those of lesbian-identified daughters. In this paper, we focus on the daughters, analyzing their practices of intimacy through monetary gifts, emotional closeness, and gendered labor. In each of these, we pay attention to the impact of the sexual orientation of the daughters and the role of the partner on the relationship between mothers and daughters and on gendered familial expectations. In the conclusion, we reflect critically on the implications of the current analysis on extant and future research, particularly with respect to the concepts and framework of analysis.

Gender Research in Japanese Sociology: Complicit or Critical?

GIS Journal: The Hosei Journal of Global and Interdisciplinary Studies

To assess the impact of critical gender research on sociology in Japan, I analyzed 558 theoretical and empirical articles published between 1989 and 2010 in the official journal of the Japan Sociological Society, Japanese Sociological Review (Shakaigaku Hyoron). All the articles were coded for topic/subarea, methodology, and gender, affiliation, and professional status of the author(s). In addition, the gender-relevant articles were analyzed to gauge the extent to which a critical gender approach was adopted that challenged conventional sociological research, theories or concepts. It was found that while men authored the vast majority of the articles published, women authored the vast majority of the gender relevant articles. Further, there was no sign of vibrant critical gender research among junior scholars. However, even though the impact of gender research on sociology was limited, there were clear signs of critical challenges to the conventional practice of sociology.
