Course Introduction

Cultural Resources Studies Course

While cultural resources were previously studied individually in such various fields as art history, cultural studies, philology, literature, anthropology and historical archaeology, this course analyzes them as a whole in consideration of their correlation. A large amount of fragmented information on cultural resources is obtained directly from the source material in an exhaustive and objective way and synthesized through digitization, mathematical and data science methods.

FUKUDA Tomoko

FUKUDA Tomoko

Professor

Research Field
Japanese literature

Master's Program

Research Topic
Research on manuscripts of Japanese classical literature and their expressions

I study the expressions in kana literature in the Heian period such as waka and narratives. My literary research is based on accurately compiled differences between various versions and empirical data aggregated from a philological standpoint. I teach students specific methods necessary for logical inquiry into the nature of the literary work.

SUKIGARA Toshio

Professor

Research Field
Japanese archaeology, cultural history

Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Archaeological study of medieval societies, method of historical research by computerization of non-textual resources

In response to the issues raised by Yoshihiko Amino and Susumu Ishii on the study of medieval cities, I study the dynamics of medieval society from the viewpoint of regionality and spatial structure and through the reconstruction of historic landscape synthesizing a variety of non-textual information such as historic ruins, geography and paintings. I also study the universal method of historical research using computerized non-textual resources.

YANO Tamaki

Professor

Research Field
cultural phylogenetics, mathematical philology, traditional cultures

Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Reconstructing the past, genealogy of manuscripts, fragrance, tea and flowers, brain waves and music

As bio-phylogenetics reconstructs history with the “ancestor-descendant” relationship, a phylogenetic point of view is necessary in the context of culture and language in order to reconstruct the past. For non-superficial, deep understanding of cultural phenomena, one must have a mathematical viewpoint and experience the actual culture. I teach how to analyze brain waves and music based on data analyses.

TSUMURA Hiroomi

TSUMURA Hiroomi

Associate Professor

Research Field
spatio-temporal informatics, anthropology

Master's Program

Research Topic
Ethnological and historical survey and study of human cultural heritage

Human activities consist of coordinates on the temporal and spatial axis, and each phenomenon there is normalized by the thematic axis called behavior. I provide students with the skill to computerize various human behaviors from a phenomenological viewpoint, and the methodology to evaluate the phase of spatio-temporal connection and interpret human behavior.
