Digital Humanities

Chair: Kozaburo Hachimura

The Digital Humanities is a new concept and trend of research andeducation in the Humanities, emerging in the last decade. While researchers have not reached consensus on its definition, digital data available online all over the world as well as the global collaboration and communication through the web undoubtedly usher in a paradigm shift in the Humanities research. Trans-disciplinary rather than a specific academic discipline, the Digital Humanities is expected to introduce new methodologies, ideas, and outcomes into various fields in the Humanities.

Culture based Media Art & Music

Chair: Naoko Tosa

It is anticipated that the world in 21th century would become more and more Asian-like. A person with a camera, which is a symbolized form of a Japanese person, became a normal style for the people all over the world now.

It has been said that along with long history of human we have been treated intelligence, sensitivity, consciousness in turn as the central and most important part of human. 20th century was an era of Intelligence. Then 21th century would be an era of sensitivity.

Fortunately the concept of sensitivity, which would become the central concept for human, has been the essential basis of local culture.

It would be necessary for us to consider this deeply. And we should be aware of the generality, value, importance of culture and should appeal it to the world.
