[Lesson]
文法練習
①疑問文
what, who, where, when, how, why をカバーしました。
基本の文法構造は一緒かつ、日常会話でもよく使われるので、覚えやすいかと思います^^
疑問詞の後に必ず動詞をいれることがポイントです!
6つの疑問詞を当てはめる練習や、
実際に疑問詞を使って自己紹介で相手に質問するアクティビティを最後にしました!

②感嘆文
what, howを用いた感嘆文を練習しました。
what,howは文章の構成が異なるので、文章を作るときには注意が必要です。
実際に文章を作ってみたり、平常文から感嘆文を作る練習もしました^^

実際に使うときには感情がこもっているのが感嘆文なので、発音して練習することをお勧めします!

Thanks:)

本日は希望を表す表現をしました。

I wish:~だったらいいのに
I hope:~になるといいね
I want:~したい
I would like to:~したいのですが、~お願いします

I wishは現実では叶わないがそうであえばいいなという表現です。wishの後は過去形の動詞がきます。
I hopeは~になるといいね、現実にも起こりうる願いです。
I wantは自分が~欲しい、したいと直接的です。
I would like toはお店などで~お願いしますというニュアンスです。

以上細かいニュアンスの違いですが、是非使えるようになりましょう!

Social Stratification, Social Stratification of Animals, Speciesism

Social stratification (strata: layers )refers to a complex system of institutions that brings about inequalities in power, income, wealth, education, etc. Since the notion of institution is an abstract one, there is a need to pill off its layers.  It is of no surprise to see that what is hidden beneath are the human beings with their ideologies. The most powerful one and the most prevalent one is the ideology of capital(ism),which relays on strata within a society. Can you think of some examples?

Here are some [1]:

Asset group*: (1) Economic; Type: (a) Income, (b) Ownership

We can look at each of type from two perspectives: advantaged group (AG)  and disadvantaged group (DG):

  • Economic=> Income=> AG: Professional; DG: Laborer
  • Economic=> Ownership=> AG: Capitalist; DG: Employee

* an asset is anything that can be useful or valuable; an asset group, therefore, is a structure of valuable elements, which contribute to division of society into strata.

Based on this definition and examples, what do you think is the meaning of Social Stratification of Animals and Speciesism?

Today’s class was a sad one because it was the last day of the student and so we talked about what were going to do this summer. I don’t know when I will be seeing her again, but I am glad to have been her teacher/friend as she was one of my first students at Shijo. She gave me a number of recommendations for places to visit in summer in and around Kyoto which I will definitely be doing!

National Identity

“Nationalism are rarely consistent in content; what remains permanent are their bases in national consciousness. Depending upon the specific historical context, nationalism has most often been expressed in terms of economic or territorial expansion, the establishment of political sovereignty, or social and cultural norms of behavior. (…) National consciousness (…) implies the existence of historically embedded and culturally transmitted assumptions concerning the imagined community of the nation and its citizens.” [1]

What are the cultural norms of behavior in Japan? What does it mean to be Japanese?

He-Gassen (屁合戦), in other words, Fart Battle is a scroll created in Edo Period by group of anonymous Japanese artists.

“It consists of roughly 15 different scenes depicting people directing their farts at other people or objects. There are people farting at each other. There are people farting through objects. There are people combating farts with fans. There are bags of farts being released. Trees and cats get blown away by farts. And the scroll culminates with a divine gust of flatulence knocking over a ceremony and causing complete and utter chaos.” [1]

“So why did these artists create this scroll? Some have argued that it’s a form of social commentary depicting anti-foreigner sentiment as Japan was beginning to emerge from isolation. Others feel we try to read too much into the art and that it was created simply because farts are funny. This scroll definitely isn’t alone in its sub-genre. There were many artists practicing Ukiyo-e – woodblock prints that emerged as a form of low-brow entertainment – who took up flatulence as a way to gain laughs.”[1]

Let`s have a look at it, then! What do you think? Does the scroll, indeed, depict anti-foreigner sentiment or is it a form of toilet humor?  Can you notice any differences between opponents?

The scroll in its entirety was digitized by Waseda University and can be seen in hi-res format (http://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/chi04/chi04_01029/).
