Johnny Grosso, George Wash. Univ. アーサーアンダーセン税務事務所 IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム What’s the Seminar: Social Organization of Japan course about? AN391 M. Sugihara & A. Ogden, (3 credits, Required) Student Portfolio (70%) Placement Description & Profile Student Learning Contract Culture Learning Journal (x 4) Topic Oriented Ethnography Gentry Ferrell, Univ. of Rochester 国際文化フォーラム IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム But isn’t this really just an internship program? No. The IES Tokyo student is a learner engaged in a form of on-going, ethnographic research of which the core focus is on the meaning of actions and events to the people within the social setting the student seeks to understand... Amanda Silverman, George Wash. Univ. JETRO 日本貿易振興協会 IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム I don’t get it. What is Participant-Observation? The participant-observer has two goals: to engage in activities appropriate to the situation, and to observe the activities, people and physical aspects of the situation. In doing participant observation for ethnographic purposes, both questions and answers must be discovered in the social setting being studied. Damon Sexton, Indiana University 株式会社トムソンコーポレーション IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム Huh? What exactly is ethnographic research? Ethnography offers students the chance to step outside their narrowly defined cultural backgrounds, to set aside socially inherited ethnocentrism, if only for a brief period, and to apprehend the world from the viewpoint of other human beings who live by different meaning systems. Rebecca Shoff, University of Virginia 羽田雄一郎事務所 IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム Hmm... A bit more on ethnographic research... What cultural assumptions are people using to organize their behavior and interpret their experience? What meanings do these interactions have for them? Rather than collecting “data” about people, the IES student seeks to learn from people, to be taught by them. They are not agents of change. Frank Kirby, Austin College 市川市立妙典小学校 IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験プログラム “A person can be witness to a tremendous parade of episodes and yet, if he fails to keep making something out of them..., he gains little in the way of experience from having been around when they happened. It is not what happens around him that makes a man experienced; it is the successive construing and re-construing of what happens, as it happens, that enriches the experience of his life.” George Kelly A Theory of Personality, 1963 IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム So, what are the realities or limitations of the program?

IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム Some advice from your Senpai... Take advantage of the placement. Try to be placed in an organization that relates to your research interests. Build strong relationships with the people at your field placement. Be prepared for deeper immersion into Japanese culture than even your homestay will offer. Learn as much as you can about the organization. Joshua Lamb, Indiana University NIKE Japan IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム:  IES Tokyo Field Placement Program 社会体験 プログラム Some advice from your Senpai... We can either get nothing or a lot from this experience. Students have to realize what matters is how much effort they put in. Be open. Don’t be discouraged easily. Be flexible. Value every day at the placement. It goes by too fast. It’s on you. Go out and do your best. Have fun with it! Joshua Lamb, Indiana University NIKE Japan
