■Research summary
Historical sociology of ethnicity and race in the United States

 Taking the long-term transformation process of Japanese immigrants/Japanese Americans in the United States as the specific subject, I theoretically and demonstratively verify the concept called ethnicity from the perspective of sociology. Based on my thesis, I published "Historical Sociology of 'Japanese Americans'" (Sairyusha) in 2007, in which I presented a framework called racial ethnic composition intertwining ethnicity, race and nationalism, and analyzed formation and transformation of Japanese American society in Los Angeles from circa 1900 and the 1960s.

Presently, I mainly study the three subjects as follows: (1) Based on ethnicity and race theories in the United States, I consider how the U.S. should be as a multidimensional society, focusing attention on historical development of idea and policies of multiculturalism. (2) I conduct historical study of race/ethnic relations including Japanese Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Chinese immigrants in Los Angeles after the WWII, and of how urban community that embraces these multiple race/ethnic groups should be. (3) I have been participating in some joint researches from the viewpoint of redefining development of international comparative study of trans-nationalism and immigrants in international immigration from the perspective of Pacific Rim.
