Research Topic
長期研究  Performing Hiddnness: Looking at the facets of the twentieth Karematsu Shrine Festival in Shimo-Kurosaki 

概要(Abstract) The present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners are descendants of Japanese Catholics who were persecuted in the early 1600s and subsequently went underground, practicing secretly their faith for about 250 years. Ethnographic and historical evidence shows that their faith-based communities have drawn very deeply from the religious tradition and culture bequeathed to them by their deceased predecessors or righteous ancestors in faith, including mechanisms by which the ‘hiddenness’ has become part of their continued Christian life and worship (Munsi 2014:353). Here we would like instead to focus on the religiously committed communities of Shimo-Kurosaki, Kami-Kurosaki, and Shitsu (Nagasaki) to highlight the singularity of some salient aspects of the twentieth Karematsu Shrine Festival from the performance and event-centered ethnographic perspectives. Singularly important for our purposes is the understanding of how the concepts of indexicality and negotiation, the presence of social energy, and the facets of interfaith gathering are expressed and articulated by Kakure Kirishitan practitioners, Catholics, and Buddhists in a decidedly urban setting. 

長期研究  Traditional Medicine of the Sakata People in Congo DRC 

概要(Abstract) After an overview of the origins of healing practices in Sakata society gleaned from oral history, I will first focus on the meta-physical body-parts as conceptualized by the Sakata. Then I will conduct semi-structure interviews and formal/informal conversations on the physical body called Njore. Here I will be very much interested in three aspects: (1) the appearance (kelli), (2) the life principle (kenima), and the double body (kenyinyei). This information will potentially allow me to explore the theme of the “logic in the repertoire” of Sakata medicine. Two, four, or six parts of the body evoked in literature will be identified and explored in the field. Along with the data on ceramic vessels used for healing practice I hope that I will glean much ethnographic information from informants so that I can explore further this facet of the subject against the backdrop of the contrast visible versus invisible, which is a generative formula in the whole Sakata cosmology. 

長期研究  Kakure Kirishitan Gravestones in Nagasaki Settings 

概要(Abstract) This study provides an anthropological analysis of the most salient features of Kakure Kirishitan gravestones and landscapes in Nagasaki settings. The specific focus is on local patterns mirrored in the Kakure Kirishitan practitioners’ social contingencies, reinforcement history, and dynamically lived contexts. The synthesis suggests that Kakure Kirishitan survivors produced fundamental faith-practices, symbols of common cultural and religious identity, and cherished memories that have long established their gravestones as secondary sacred spaces of remembrance. The analysis reinforces the significance of the material and immaterial aspects highlighting the Kakure Kirishitan practitioners’ quintessential quest to idealize, establish, and maintain the human-divine harmony in their present localities. In general, therefore, this study has provided a refined interpretive tool for demonstrating how Kakure Kirishitan gravestones represent a specific sub-culture, often unspoken, but fully understood within a Christian and Japanese tradition. 

長期研究  The Age-Old Ritual Practice of Ohatsuhoage: Intersection of Identities and Resources (Part I) 

概要(Abstract) This study focuses on the Kakure Kirishitan survivors found in Nagasaki settings to reconfigure our actual understanding of the salient aspects and effects of their age-old ritual of Ohatsuhoage, using a micro-illustrative analysis. The synthesis suggested that the Ohatsuhoage ceremony constitutes a stable part of Kakure Kirishitan ideology, in which its followers critically take up membership in and identity with communities, which in turn serve as homes of these shared practices. Yet this collective ceremony essentially represents a religious practice that includes rice and sake offering and placatory gifts, prayers (Orasho), body movement, and communal meal sharing. Intriguingly, the potential of this ritually-prepared communal meal lies in its ability to shape participants’ psycho-religious imagination, reinforce their sense of belonging to community and collective memories and emotions, while at the same time grounding their identity formats and adaptation processes. Thus, for Kirishitan minorities, the Ohatsuhoage ceremony and its attendant beliefs continue to be historically deemed important and valuable enough to maintain their communities’ minimal religious and cultural survival in urban settings. In general, therefore, this study provided a refined interpretative tool for understanding how the old-age ritual of Ohatsuhoage has increasingly proven to be a definitive component of the various processes that ultimately enables Kakure Kirishitan survivors to be nurtured and resources by the strands of their long-standing spirituality and religion.  

長期研究  The Age-Old Ritual Practice of Ohatsuhoage among the Kakure Kirishitan Survivors: Intersection of Identities and Resources (Part II) 

概要(Abstract) This research highlights the singularity of the most salient features of the Ohatsuhoage ritual event that constitutes one of the most persistent and deeply ingrained aspects of Kakure Kirishitan survivors in Nagasaki. By bringing together these significant characteristics from the lived religious experiences of three Kakure Kirishitan communities, I attempt to forge a significant positive correlation between the corporate identities and ritual resources that the material gives evidence to. The synthesis demonstrates that the ritually-prepared communal meal—Ohatsuhoage—constitutes a stable part of Kakure Kirishitan dominant ideology in which its followers critically take up membership in and identity with the divine and human community. Intriguingly, its core elements conspire together to signal, shape, and heighten collective self-definition, psycho-religious imagination, cherished memories and emotions, while also grounding their identity formats and adaptation processes. The analysis reinforces the startling assumption that the Ohatsuhoage ritual event continues to be, for the most part of the actor-participants, an historical and valuable religious activity deemed important enough to maintain their minimal survival in urban settings. In general, therefore, this study provides a refined interpretative tool for further understanding how the Ohatsuhoage ritual activity has increasingly proved to be a definitive component of the various processes that ultimately enables Kakure Kirishitan survivors to be nurtured by the strands of their longstanding spirituality and religion in the flux of social change. 

長期研究  Folk Belief and Traditions of the Supernatiral among the Kakure Kirishitan: Disclosing 'Japanized Catholicism' 

概要(Abstract) This research focuses on aspects of folk belief and traditions of the supernatural experienced by the present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan (Hidden Christians) in Nagasaki prefecture in Japan. The aim is to establish a firm basis on which it is justified to speak of a kind of ‘Japanized Catholicism’. Using ethnographic techniques, the results suggest that the Kakure Kirishitan’s religion includes a mixture of rituals, liturgies, symbols, and a few texts developed and adapted, during persecution times by their predecessors, from remnants of 16th century Portuguese Catholicism, often camouflaging them in forms borrowed from the surrounding visible forms of Buddhism and Shinto. Moreover, Kakure Kirishitan communities have re-emerged today in urban contexts as corporate religious minorities whose ongoing struggle is to accomplish transition while retaining continuity with of the past. On the whole, the evidence lends credence to the conclusion that ‘Kakure Kirishitanism’ is not a Japanese folk religion but rather ‘Japanized Catholicism’. Thus, because their religion in particular defines who they are, to change religions, for Kakure Kirishitan individuals, would mean giving up their identity and the support and security that are embodied in it. In general, therefore, it seems that essential elements in the sociological, psycho-religious and spiritual experience of the Kakure Kirishitan constitute their significance in Japan’s socio-religious tradition.

Key words: Kakure Kirishitan, folk belief and traditions, supernatural, religious identity, ‘Japanized Catholicism’
 

長期研究  Kakure Kirishitan in Urban Contexts: An Ethnographic Analysis of the Survival Strategies 

概要(Abstract) The Present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan represent a tiny, marginalized minority of the local populace, and their survival is in question. During field investigation, it also became evident that some Kakure Kirishitan communities continue to organize religiously, while others have either disbanded, or have enriched themselves just a little more. So far, however, there has been little discussion about this particular facet of the subject. It is therefore of signal importance that research be conducted to delineate the nature and extent of this issue, and the ways in which religiously committed Kakure Kirishitan communities have attempted to survive in a variety of real world settings.
This article contributes to this inquiry by providing empirical evidence from Nagasaki districts, focusing on some of the specific survival strategies and practices implemented by Kakure Kirishitan communities to address often complex and fluctuating threats they are currently facing. 

長期研究  The Matrilineal Kinship Ideology and Religious Forms Identifying and Preserving Sakata Society 

概要(Abstract) The purpose of this ethnographic research is to offer a contribution to the analysis of the dominant sociological, cultural and religious patterns which actually secure the maintenance and survival of the society of the Basakata in contemporary setting. Initially, I will explore the question of whether the structuring processes by which the matrilineal kinship ideology and religious forms prove equally informative, in regard to their role and interrelationship in the Basakata lands. By using a mixed method approach, I hope to bring these two areas of social life of the Basakata into intelligible relationship in a single analysis. A further component of this analysis entails a narrative analysis of the distinct and apparently influential retention factors and their implications for today. The content of this paper is particularly significant in that there have been few other studies on this particular facet of the subject. 

長期研究  キリシタン神社の歴史と現状ー地域社会の宗教観をめぐってー 

概要(Abstract) 研究の目的と方法

本研究の主目的は、キリシタン神社の歴史と現在的考察への貢献を提供することである。それは具体的には、長崎市の渕町と黒崎町、および五島列島の新上五島町若松におけるキリシタン神社に関する歴史民俗資料学と文化人類学的考察であり、長年培ってきた現地調査と文献調査に基づく貴重な研究成果である。
今回は黒崎町の枯松神社(キリシタン神社)の特性を見出すとともに、かくれキリシタンを含む地域住民との関連性を論述することにある。ここで筆者は、2010年11月3日に行われる第11回枯松神社祭礼の社会組織的な側面に集中することを提議する。そうした点から、簡略にキリシタン神社の倫理と象徴的な側面にも触れることにする。後者は、前研究において深く検討されたものである(Munsi 2008)。
キリシタン神社の現状を観察した結果、地域住民の信仰形態に影響を与える文化的、社会的、宗教的側面が全体としておぼろげなら見えてきた。当該社会の法制度や歴史的・文化的背景に応じて、筆者は、次の考慮すべき属性を置き検討する。

1) キリシタン神社は、どのような文化的関心を表すのか、また、キリシタン神社の大祭礼がそのコミュニティ、あるいはかくれキリシタンのグループにおいて、どのような性格や位置づけを持ち、そしてそのためにどのような形式(構造)を取ってきたのか。
2) キリシタン神社の実態を把握するとともに、近年地域社会的変化の中で、かくれキリシタンがキリシタン神社、あるいはそれの持つ宗教的価値観を、どのように維持し、振舞っているか。 

長期研究  かくれキリシタンの宗教活動とその社会的機能Religious Activities and Related Social Aspects of Kakure Kirishitan in Japan 

概要(Abstract) 歴史的な迫害を受けつつ「キリスト教信者」として信仰を維持するために、外見的には形を変えながらも根幹の信仰の中身は変えることなく時を経てきた「かくれキリシタン」の信仰に興味をもち、彼らが現在に至るまで人類学的にどのような発展を遂げた、また、どのように信仰文化や社会組織を継承していったかを調査し、本研究のテーマとした。従来の「かくれキリシタン」研究は、主に宗教的実践と歴史的な背景に関心を集中してきた。これらの研究においては、いずれも重要な成果をあげている。ただし、そのいずれもが、(現時点に限定せずとりあげた文献は、歴史的な脈絡においても)かくれキリシタン信徒たちの家族構造(の絆)と信仰組織の社会結合を焦点としておらず、文化的・社会的な背景をもつ全体論的な考察への方向性を欠落させている。本研究を通じて、「かくれキリシタン」の組織とその地域文化的な要素間との関係における、人類学的分析のささやかな貢献を願っている。

2021  The Dancing Church of the Congo. Missionary Paths in a changing Society  単著   
MediaComX  , A5  , 444p.  , 2022/3/31    

概要(Abstract) This book highlights some salient facets of the Catholic Church in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from the anthropological, theological, missiological, and native perspectives. It specifically provides readers with the insights that delineate the extent to which the movement of inculturation has, since 1989, gained much ground in the DRC. The main thesis of the book posits that the Congolese Catholic Church has, in a remarkable way, revealed evangelization to be its dominant strategy for survival and growth. This undeniable reality, consequently, affirms today its character as the Dancing Church in Central Africa. The Zaïrean rite and the instituted lay ministries of Bakambi and Bayangeli, on which this study has dealt with at great length, constitute, among many others, two striking attempts at inculturation through which the Congolese Catholic Church has built its own unique experience of African Christian life and faith.
However, it is the author’s contention that the process of inculturation in the DRC requires that both Congolese people and foreigners (ordained pastors and consecrated religious members or evangelizers, and laypersons) develop in themselves a keen interest in becoming substantively acquainted with Congolese customs, spiritualties, and cultural heritage in order to effectively undertake the task of inculturation in situations and areas in which they find themselves. This task also demands that the Dancing Church of the Congo further undertakes a dialogue between the cultural elements of inculturation and the burning socio-economic and political issues that mark Congolese society today. In general, therefore, this book suggests that an effective inculturation must start from the morphological aspects of culture, passing by the functional aspects, and reaching the mentality of the Congolese people themselves. The hope is that an integrated inculturation, if carried out in the DRC, will lead the Congolese Catholic Church, in this third millennium, to become truly African and determine the future of Christianity both in the country and in Africa.

ACADEMIA- Humanities and Natural Sciences   , Nanzan University  , 25  , pp.97-129  , 2023/01   

概要(Abstract) This study draws on a narrative analysis approach to investigate the distinctive aspects of Kirishitan shrines within the context of striking religious phenomena readily observable in the lived religious experiences and relics of the present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners in Nagasaki prefecture. The synthesis of ethnographic data and secondary sources suggests that Kirishitan shrines inherently display the religiosity of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners seemingly integrated into supporting local communities. This contextualized examination, thus, reinforces the significance of Kirishitan shrines as sacred sites and institutions representing the footprints of the Christian mission in Japan. At the very least, their facets and contours reflect the symbolism of a sub-culture, often silent, but fully understood within a Christian and Japanese tradition. In general, therefore, this study proposes a refined interpretative tool for demonstrating how Kirishitan shrines have been, within Christian material religion, extended not only to other sacred objects that are ritually ascribed dual nature, such Kirishitan festivals, but also to both religious texts and material vessels to a greater spiritual extent. This study highlights mechanisms by which the Kakure Kirishitan religion’s adaptation and preservation functions in the lives of its followers can lead to religious vitality and affirmation in changing localities.

Keywords: Kirishitan shrines, sacred sites, festivals, Kakure Kirishitan practitioners, religiosity, lived religious experiences, cherished memories, deceased predecessors, Christian material religion, Nagasaki.

2023  Fieldwork Research during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Selected Experiences and Fond Memories from the Congo  単著   
ACADEMIA- Social Sciences   , Nanzan University  , 24  , pp.23-40  , 2023/01   

概要(Abstract) The COVID-19 Pandemic has radically changed the perspectives of fieldwork research in many settings. This study uses an auto-ethnographic approach to determine how this unexpected world crisis affected my two research projects in the hinterland of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The synthesis suggests that my fieldwork research experience among the Sakata people necessitated the creation of new methodological tools and ethical practices, as well as the adaptation of older practices and techniques, to better meet the challenges I faced in the research processes. The analysis, thus, reinforces the assumption that additional measures may be required while conducting fieldwork research in the circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis, depending on specific characteristics of the planned research project, environmental conditions, and local community public health situations. This study has relevance for theoretical conceptualizations of fieldwork research and offers two stunning examples of how an ethnographer engages, adapts, and subsequently survives in the midst of risks associated with resuming essential fieldwork research both during and after theCOVID-19 pandemic. Together, these field experiences, struggles, and insights, therefore, delineate how a combination of “agile research” or “digital ethnography” and in-person ethnographic study can aid greatly in this effort by providing new ideas and data.

Keywords: Fieldwork research, COVID-19 pandemic, mitigate risks, Sakata people, Congo, digital ethnography, in-person ethnography fieldwork, innovation and flexibility.

概要(Abstract) Human practices, water and land management, ecosystem and biodiversity conservation, and protected landscapes have long been topics of much writing and debate. This article focuses mainly on the Congo (DRC) to highlight its relevance to the world, both in terms of its strategic place in the protection of biodiversity and in view of its immense and important resources. Using ethnographic and secondary sources, the results suggest that the DRC, unfortunately, finds itself today in a situation that contrasts with its potential, displaying several threats to environmental protection. Indeed, it happens that the implementation of environmental standards in the DRC is detrimental to its development efforts. On this stance, however, there is a paradox between environmental protection and satisfaction of socio-economic needs. This study provides a refined interpretative tool for further understanding how the protection of the environment is a necessity for the very existence of the individual while the satisfaction of socio-economic needs occupies a significant place for the present and future survival of any human or non-human species. Hence, the ecological question of biodiversity conservation landscape, deforestation, reforestation, and management of natural resources related to the sustainability of the Congo Basin rainforests, grasslands, and rivers ultimately needs, alongside that of Amazonia, serious global economic-ethical attention and solidarity today to ensure the future of humanity and other non-human species.


Keywords: Congo, Congo River Basin, environmental protection, socio-natural environmental issues, biodiversity conservation landscape, deforestation, reforestation, management of natural resources.

2022  Kakure Kirishitan Practitioners in Nagasaki Settings: An Ethnographic Study of their Community Leadership Patterns  単著   
ACADEMIA- Humanities and Natural Sciences   , Nanzan University  , Vol.24  , pp.135-164  , 2022/06   

概要(Abstract) The present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners in Nagasaki Prefecture represent the descendants of Japanese Catholics who were persecuted in the early 1600s and who, subsequently, went underground. Recent ethnographic evidence has shown that they constitute a very small, marginalized minority of the local populace, and their survival is in question. This synthesis focuses on the lived-religious experiences, social relations, cultural ideals, and struggles of five active Kakure Kirishitan communities to further highlight the singularity of some salient aspects of their leadership structures and determinants that have significantly characterize them in their present localities. Using ethnographic techniques, I argue that the continued existence and success of Kakure Kirishitan leaders in their respective surviving faith-based communities essentially depend on a continuously creative balancing of leadership functioning and psycho-religious interests dealing with circumstances that can change at any moment. This study, therefore, suggests that Kakure Kirishitan constructs represent a common heritage, an aspect in accordance with which Kakure Kirishitan practitioners effectively identify themselves and that they use to meaningfully account for their continuing spiritual path. This amounts to the quintessential quest of these seemingly integrated religious minorities for assuring their minimal survival in the modern pattern of urban life.

Keywords: Kakure Kirishitan Practitioners, faith-based community, leadership patterns, religious
experience, deceased predecessors, righteous ancestors in faith, minimal survival, Nagasaki Christians.

ACADEMIA- Social Sciences   , Nanzan University  , Vol.23  , pp.81-109  , 2022/06   

概要(Abstract) Recent developments in the study of Africa have heightened the world’s interest to have a stable and prosperous Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) that is capable to help Africa fulfil its economic potential in the 21st century, while offering at the same time great potential for profound change to humanity. This synthesis highlights the nature and extent of the DRC’s potentialities, and determine possible asymmetries and risks entailed in this process at the national, regional, and global levels. Analysis shows that the DRC has, regardless its geo-strategic position in the heart of Central Africa and immense natural ressources, long failed to act in concert and develop a transit economy in the sub-region. These shortcomings have been attributed to the country’s lack of political vision, political will, human and financial capacities, as well as the overall unpleasant regional climate. The study, therefore, provides a refine interpretative tool for understanding how the DRC represents the future of both African and global economic networks. Hence, its stabilization, pacification, and sustainable development, as well as its protection and power reinforcement are solely needed today, lest people in national and international spheres take advantage of the neglect to destroy the world’s ecosystem and humanity.

Keywords: DRC, geo-strategic position, mineral ressources, stability, pacification, power reinforcement, National interests, global economic networks, ecosystem, humanity.

2023/06/01   

概要(Abstract) This study focuses particularly on the little-explored social phenomenon of the relationship between cotton and
humans that is observed in different contexts, sectors, and conditions of lived-experiences, business, and economic
development, and exists around us. It then explains, along with case studies and actual events, why cotton is so
important to humans and why the two are inevitably inseparable. The connection between the two may sound
metaphorical, but it is, rather, an unmistakable reality. I argue that this relationship will continue as long as human
beings live their social, economic, and material lives. Here, cotton represents one of the world’s leading agricultural
crops and appears in many situations as an important textile raw material in clothing. For example, it is cultivated
and picked in cotton fields, used in spinning and dyeing mills to produce yarn and fabrics, in sewing factories to
manufacture products, and in retail outlets to sell cotton products. In all of these stages, cotton and humans continue
to be inextricably linked. The analysis thus reinforces the assumption that the maintenance of natural ecology and
human ecology should be reconsidered today as being equally crucial in the process of cotton production and
consumption. On the whole, these finding, though preliminary, have important implications for developing our
understanding of the many facets and contours of cotton, with regional studies being crucial to such understanding.

Keywords: Cotton, humans, production and consumption, economic development, human dignity, sustainable
community

CNRS Editions  , 413p  , 2020.6    

概要(Abstract) My overall observation is that this book successfully fulfills its aims to deftly re-interpret the social and religious history of a Japanese village society. The merit of Ramos is to have particularly demonstrated the extent to which “religion, in its [ultimate] social and spiritual dimension, plays a significant role in preserving its quintessential importance in community organization, modes of thought, and broader human relations [and collectively shared resources]” (p.20). Conceptually, interpretivism is advanced as a suitable philosophical framework for the pursuit of study that offers a methodological rationale for a pragmatic, mixed-method investigation. Although there have been some ethnographic and historical studies on this facet of the subject, the sample and context of this work gives it a distinctive character. The book is organized into six well-documented, integrated and interrelated topical chapters, within a broader analytic-conceptual discussion on the research sample. Readers get the impression that the author pays throughout close attention to the interconnectedness of the chapters as well as the general cohesiveness of the book. In a similar vein, the concise summary at the end of each chapter makes transitions from one to the next very smooth.

概要(Abstract) Kirishitan Shrines: Looking at the Religiosity of Local Communities

This study draws on narrative analysis approach to investigate the distinctive aspects of Kirishitan shrines within the context of striking religious phenomena readily observable in the lived religious experiences and relics of the present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners in Nagasaki prefecture. The synthesis of ethnographic data and secondary sources suggest that Kirishitan shrines inherently display the religiosity of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners seemingly integrated into supporting local communities. This contextualized examination, thus, reinforces the significance of Kirishitan shrines as sacred sites and institutions representing the footprints of the Christian mission in Japan. At the very least, their facets and contours reflect the symbolism of a sub-culture, often silent, but fully understood within a Christian and Japanese tradition. In general, therefore, this study proposes a refined interpretative tool for understanding how Kirishitan shrines have been, within Christian material religion, extended not only to other sacred objects that are ritually ascribed dual nature, such as Kirishitan festivals, but also to both religious texts and material vessels to a greater spiritual extent. This study highlights mechanisms by which the Kakure Krishtian religion's adaptation and preservation functions in the lives of its followers can lead to religious vitality and affirmatio in changing localities.

Principal Researcher     

研究内容(Research Content) This study provides an anthropological analysis of the most salient features of Kakure Kirishitan gravestones and landscapes in Nagasaki settings. The specific focus is on local patterns mirrored in the Kakure Kirishitan practitioners’ social contingencies, reinforcement history, and dynamically lived contexts. The synthesis suggests that Kakure Kirishitan survivors produced fundamental faith-practices, symbols of common cultural and religious identity, and cherished memories that have long established their gravestones as secondary sacred spaces of remembrance. The analysis reinforces the significance of the material and immaterial aspects highlighting the Kakure Kirishitan practitioners’ quintessential quest to idealize, establish, and maintain the human-divine harmony in their present localities. In general, therefore, this study has provided a refined interpretive tool for demonstrating how Kakure Kirishitan gravestones represent a specific sub-culture, often unspoken, but fully understood within a Christian and Japanese tradition.

2023  Cotton-human Relations and SDGs 

Cotton cultivation and consumption face various issues in today's globalized world. The effects of cotton on local community sustainability call for further ethnographic inquiry. From this perspective, this study analyses the relationship of cotton production and fair trade as well as with the deplorable implications of a growing amount of child labor in India, Bangladesh, Uzbekistan, and Mali. An important note is made on the concepts of conventional cotton and organic cotton in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

2022  Kakure Kirishitan Practitioners: A Study of their Historical Background , Socio-Cultural and Psycho-Religious Constructs 

This study demonstrates that Kakure Kirishitan practitoners have been intrinsically and extrinsically characterized by remarkable spiritual motivation and persistence, psycho-religious experiences, and emotions, as well as vivid historical, Christian, and moral references to their dceased predecessors or righteous ancestors in faith. More importantly, they have sought, through,the so-called Kirishitan shrine festivals, the visibility and viability of their religious beliefs and practices in the public sphere, while privetely forming and reaffirming suitable images of community, including member bonds, secrecy, fond memories, and sacred relic veneration---the most basic tenets of their religion and ideology.

2021  Kakure Kirishitan Practitioners in Nagasaki: An Ethnography of their Community Leadership Patterns 

The present-day remnants of Kakure Kirishitan practitioners in Nagasaki Prefecture represent the descendants of Japanese Catholics who were persecuted in the early 1600s and who, subsequently, went underground. Recent ethnographic evidence has shown that they constitute a very small, marginalized minority of the local populace, and their survival is in question. This synthesis focuses on the lived-religious experiences, social relations, cultural ideals, and struggles of five active Kakure Kirishitan communities to further highlight the singularity of some salient aspects of their leadership structures and determinants that have significantly characterize them in their present localities. Using ethnographic techniques, I argue that the continued existence and success of Kakure Kirishitan leaders in their respective surviving faith-based communities essentially depend on a continuously creative balancing of leadership functioning and psycho-religious interests dealing with circumstances that can change at any moment. This study, therefore, suggests that Kakure Kirishitan constructs represent a common heritage, an aspect in accordance with which Kakure Kirishitan practitioners effectively identify themselves and that they use to meaningfully account for their continuing spiritual path. This amounts to the quintessential quest of these seemingly integrated religious minorities for assuring their minimal survival in the modern pattern of urban life.

2021  Unraveling the Threads: Why does Congo represent the Future of the Globalized World Order? 

Recent developments in the field of African studies have heightened the world’s interest to have a stable and prosperous Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) that is capable to help Africa fulfil its economic potential in the 21st century, while offering at the same time great potential for profound change to humanity. This synthesis highlights the nature and extent of the DRC’s potentialities, and determine possible asymmetries and risks entailed in this process at the national, regional, and global levels. Analysis shows that the DRC has, regardless its geo-strategic position in the heart of Central Africa and immense natural ressources, long failed to act in concert and develop a transit economy in the sub-region. These shortcomings have been attributed to the country’s lack of political vision, political will, human and financial capacities, as well as the overall unpleasant regional climate. The study, therefore, provides a refine interpretative tool for understanding how the DRC represents the future of both African and global economic networks. Hence, its stabilization, pacification, and sustainable development, as well as its protection and power reinforcement are solely needed today, lest people in national and international spheres take advantage of the neglect to destroy the world’s ecosystem and humanity.

Keywords: DRC, geo-strategic position, mineral ressources, stability, pacification, power reinforcement,
National interests, global economic networks, ecosystem, humanity.
