The Japan Studies Review (JSR), an annual peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the joint efforts of the Institute for Asian Studies at Florida International University and the Southern Japan Seminar, continues to be both an outlet for publications related to Southern Japan Seminar events and a journal that encourages submissions from a wide range of scholars in the field.
Appearing in the 2013 issue (Volume XVII) are five articles dealing with a variety of topics on Japan, including language conflicts with the Ainu, Rūkyūans, and Koreans; an analysis of postindustrial generalities and generational transformation from a short story by Murakami Haruki, titled “Pan’ya Saishūgeki;” the significance of the Shin Yokohama Rāmen Museum to the representation of the “rāmen” dish as a national symbol of Japan; an analysis of Ozaki Yutaka’s music career in the 1980s and his song lyrics; and the effectiveness of teacher feedback on Japanese-as-a-foreign-language writing.
This issue also features two essays, which cover topics such as the causes of the ‘Cool Japan’ phenomenon and Zen Master Dōgen’s teachings on Bodhi-mind. Four book reviews are included on various topics including business between Japan and other countries, a new Japanese perspective on Pearl Harbor, Japanese manhood, ethics, and power dynamics in Japanese politics, and Korean workers in interwar Japan.
