Blog update

I haven't posted for a few months here, but thought I should be more dilegent since I'm making my students keep up their blogs. One thing new is the updated links on the sidebar. They are to blogs for a seminar course on the theme of cultural and ethnic diversity. We are exploring the question of if and how people with various socio-cultural backgrounds can live together peacefully, fairly, justly and cooperatively in a nation-state. It will be interesting to see how young adults in Japan address this question since Japan has struggled with issues of cultural and ethnic otherness and yet seems likely out of economic necessity to require many more immigrants in the coming years.
