    The Internet society is fundamentally changing the world. Young people, especially, obtain the information they wish to know by first surfing the Internet. Furthermore, people are relying more on video than text as sources of information. In such times, we have begun to realize that there is something lacking in simply continuing to publish papers in English and Japanese, as we have done until now. We therefore decided to share video content online.

    The scholars in the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) are leading researchers active around the world, with a focus on Southeast Asia. Their efforts are introduced here with short videos. Japanese is the main language used, but English and local languages are shown in subtitles. If you find a video interesting, please read related literature introduced by research members. Or, try contacting the researchers. In doing so, your curiosity will be even more aroused, and you may even try to do your own research. It does not matter how old you are when you study. We hope these short videos will serve as springboards for you to take a step into area studies on a global scale with an emphasis on Southeast Asia.

Drawing Weather Maps Getting Started In Fieldwork

CAST:
OGAWA, Mariko (CSEAS)

I first became interested in fieldwork after walking in town and walking in the mountains. I saw and heard the city; I talked to people while walking with my own legs. While mountain climbing, I carried a map and studied the terrain; I observed the plants, and consulted local weather lore...

Learning by Living Together
-Ethnographic Fieldwork in the Thai Highlands-

CAST:
HAYAMI, Yoko(CSEAS)

For ethnographic field research, we arrive at our research sites with our “big question” and live together with the people as much as possible. Through this experience, we bring ourselves to reconsider what we take for granted, rethink the “question” itself, seek answers, and reframe our questions continuously. Here, I introduce my own long-term research in a Karen village in the hills of Northern Thailand.

Movie Reviews

"It is very interesting to learn about issues (fires due to human production activities, etc.) from the field. I also think it is important in the end to be on the side that supports local people. "

"I learned how researchers actually conducted fieldwork, and also about the current situation in Indonesia and the issues it faces."
