JSPS 17th Forum Outline

Seventeenth “Science in Japan” Forum Held
in Washington DC



Program and Presentations

 On 12 July, JSPS’s office in Washington, DC held its annual summer “Science in Japan” Forum.
 As in the past, this 17th forum in the series introduced a wide spectrum of Americans, including science-policy administrators, journalists and researchers, to the latest advances being made in scientific research in Japan. Titled “Routes of Indigenous Research,” this year’s forum was the first to have a theme in the social sciences.
 Divided into the three sessions-Native Ontologies and Epistemologies as Praxis; Identity in Three Dimensions: Past, Present, and Future Implications; and Indigeneity and the Ainu-the forum featured presentations by 13 US and Japanese experts and discussions inclusive of the audience on research related to the Inuit and other native Americans and to Japan’s indigenous people, including their history, environment, and applicable government policy
 Altogether, about 100 people attended the event.
