If K doesn't find her while there, we'll just email her. Can't be that hard to get a Harvard professor's email.

No luck again today. Saw Luke Roberts at the Toyotomi-Tokugawa seminar, but no Kitagawa.



For anyone tracking the conference via twitter, the majority of the action has been #AAS2011 so you should start keeping an eye on that too. I'll add both hashtags to my tweets just in case.

Well, that's a wrap for me for the conference. I'll put together a few posts, as will LtDomer, and hopefully Ameth as well, and I'll get the next part of the podcast up as well in a day or two, if not next weekend.

All in all, amazingly awesome in every way. I was glad I got to see Luke Roberts, and Kenneth Swope (I was curious after all of the hullabaloo surrounding his last book), and was disappointed that although I saw Mikael Adolphson at the conference, I don't believe he presented - although I did get to see him harangue the "Long Sixteenth Century" panel (Aksing "Why did you use that name for this seminar, because it was a convenient excuse to get you all in the same room?"). Also, glad to be introduced to the work of David Eason and David Spafford, both presenting on small relatively unknown clans active in the late Sengoku period, and I'll be looking forward to getting my hands on their forthcoming papers. 'Domer and Ameth, feel free to jump in here as well with your overall reaction to the conference.

I've already posted my reaction, but any excuse to post it again, I'll take:



Awesome. I don't have time at the moment to post all my notes on the different presentations, but I will try to go through things this week and get them up.

I should have my first blog post of the first seminar I went to up in the next hour or two.

I never understood mangamania except in terms of entertainment. It is interesting how this popular medium can be used to transmit doctrine clandestinely. John

Just Kidding I'm just kidding, obviously. I thought we were pretty convincing, and it turned out that we were.

You absolutely were. Geez, dammit. And this news has been spreading too, around the interwebs. I wonder how many people realize it was a farce. I certainly didn't. Damn it.

Ha, yeah, we saw that people were retweeting it. Someone FROM Oregon, in fact, so I hope it didn't (or maybe I hope it did??) get back to Neilson.

Good to see you there--nice to finally put a face with a screenname.

Not involved in the actual execution but knew it was coming. After it started breaking, I made a couple of tweets and one actual post from a monk bar in Kyoto while reading it all in sake haze. I was actually surprised so many people fell for this. Laughing

I was fully against ever admitting it was a joke. I was overruled.

I'm good friends with that woman from Oregon, and it wasn't me who told her about it, which was surprising. Word definitely gets around. Somehow.

Good to meet you too. I'd been wondering if we'd met on campus and just didn't know it, ie didn't know to associate one another with S-A and with a particular screenname. Anyway, sorry we couldn't spend more time (any time, really) talking or anything. Another time, I suppose.

I guessed, although since the dates were your March 31 I wasn't sure. But I found it suspicious that a whole panel discussion had not been on the agenda, and that you had no room on your recorder. The uninformative photo was also suspicious.

Not understanding Twitter I missed all discussion of it.

I believe the rule is that April Fool's jokes are not to extend beyond April 1st. Technically you began the joke prior to April 1st which I believe is also a violation of April Fool's rules. Very Happy

It was april 1st when it was posted. 2 hours short here, but it was definitely April 1st in Japan and mainland USA. Also, Kitsuno set the blogpost to go out at midnight Hawaii time. So, you're argument is invalid. Don't get confused just because we were reporting something that "HAPPENED" on the 31st.

True, it was posted 12:01AM HST on 4/1 - the rules were preserved!

Actually the "registration" included receiving a whole addendum to the agenda. There were several panels thrown together at the last minute, to include one about the Tohoku Earthquake, so it really wouldn't have occurred to anyone here that it would be odd. I would assume that someone would CHECK the addendum and see that it wasn't on there, but a late addition panel wouldn't raise any eyebrows.

Ok. Excellent job. Never again will I believe anything on SA on or around April 1. Smile

That's the perfect setup, you realize. Next year we'll publish something incredibly outlandish, but true. No one will believe it. It will be a meta-April Fools.

Session 12: Individual Papers: Security Policy in Asia
Security Policy in Asia
Chaired by Robert J. Weiner, Naval Postgraduate School
How Populist Is Japanese Security Policy?--Robert J. Weiner, Naval Postgraduate School


Ironically, the failure of two of the three presenters to show up made this one of the more interesting presentations, as it became more of a discussion than a one-sided dialogue. Prof. Robert J. Weiner of the Naval Postgraduate School (Monterrey, CA) led the discussion by first giving his paper entitled “How Populist Is Japanese Security Policy?” The thesis centers on the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) and analyzes the DPJ’s capabilities and failures regarding national security policy. Weiner argues that by virtue of being the opposition for so long, the DPJ is free of some of the “baggage” associated with the conservative LDP’s long rule (politician trips to Yasukuni, etc.), yet policy-wise, the DPJ is not that far removed from LDP positions. This actually makes the DPJ possibly more able to actually enact some of the security changes the LDP would like to have enacted, but could not for fear of international and domestic opinion. Additionally, the closeness (slight differences) in security positions taken by the DPJ and LDP enable an actual security debate in the Japanese political realm and Japanese society in general. For decades, the LDP and the opposition were so diametrically opposed that debate on Security (US basing/alliance, JSDF) was not open for debate because neither side would budge the other; the essentially took security out of the greater national discussion as an issue. The DPJ’s relatively close stance to the LDP (attributable to many DPJ politicians having originally been LDP, and minus the left-wing element close to the Japan Socialist Party junior coalition member) means that there’s enough common ground for comparison by voters. Combined with the higher profile of the SDF through recent International activity and the relief mobilization in the wake of the Tohoku Earthquake, the stage is set for a renewed discussion of security issues in the Japanese political dialogue. Prof. Heinlen then goes on to show how the DPJ is still learning on the job, as bungles by the Hatoyama administration (Futenma, Senkakus) show, and attributes this to being the junior party, consisting mostly of freshman and sophomore lawmakers, lacking any actual experience in governance. The DPJ, he says, has the opportunity to make changes because they are not the LDP, but lacks the institutional experience necessary to formulate and promulgate policy that the LDP gained over decades of leadership. Time will tell whether or not the Kan administration (or another DPJ administration) will reach that level of expertise. I felt Prof. Weiner’s ideas were intriguing, especially in light of my experience with individual JGSDF members and their trepidation at the impending (at the time) takeover of the DPJ. An interesting discussion followed, with several of us in the military, a professor at the Asian Pacific Center for Security Studies here in Honolulu, and several other contributors. Unlike some of the other presentations with dry paper recitations and little time for questions, this tchange in schedule allowed us to have less a “one person asks a question, panel member answers, move on to next question” style Q&A and more of a discussion where audience members could respond to each other, with Prof. Weiner moderating a bit.
