自己紹介

In the early 1990’s, I spent two semesters in an Asian Studies program at a Japanese university as an exchange student while completing my Master’s degree in International Affairs (NPSIA, Carleton University, Ottawa). Through this experience, I began my long fascination and endearment towards Japan. I started my teaching career in the field of English education and intercultural communications hoping to help Japanese students better understand and communicate with the people of other countries and cultures. More recently, I have returned to my original focus of research - the fields of International Relations, International Development and Globalization issues. We now live in an interdependent world. Events that take place in one part of the world will inevitably impact on the rest of us one way or another. It is therefore clearly in our own self-interest to be aware of the news, actions and developments happening elsewhere. In my classes, I raise this awareness among the students so that they are ready to both manage and benefit from international news.

学生へのメッセージ

You have all made a brave and courageous decision to spend one year of your lives abroad in places you have never been and with people you have never met. I encourage you to make the most of this opportunity. You will need to bring back the knowledge and wisdom you have learned abroad to improve not only yourselves but the organizations and communities you will work and live in upon your return. This period abroad will be one full of opportunities, rewards and challenges. It is an experience you will cherish for the rest of your lives. Please embrace it and motivate yourselves to reach your maximum potential. It is my hope that during your 4 years of studies at Kindai you will learn not only about the world beyond Japan’s borders but, more importantly, about the world that lies within each of us.

主要科目

ゼミ紹介

The world today may seem like a complicated place - and, indeed it is! So, it is important to never lose sight of our ability as humans to think reasonably and compassionately. I ask students to set aside their emotionally based preconceptions and assumptions to look at world issues with clarity, impartiality and logic. The main theme and content of the classes will be the examination of the political power structures that drive globalization and the world economy. The main aim will be to research, understand and discuss the policies, objectives and underlying ideologies of a variety of global actors that lead either to common ground, stability and peace with others or to a situation of conflict and war.
