題目:Social Representations of History as a window into National and International Political Culture: Theory, Methods, and Measurement

日時:2014年3月17日(月) 17:00-18:00

場所:東京大学本郷キャンパス 法文2号館 第3会議室*

概要:
A new literature on social representations of history has enabled a theoretical platform at the meso-level, mediating between individuals and societies, that allows conceptualization of national (culture-specific) and global (universal) political culture(s). History offers a “warrant of legitimacy” that draws from tradition to form the basis of an historical charter that is “a widely shared and iconic representation where selective elements of group history, its causes, and consequences have been elaborated into a quasi-legal form that gives moral and sometimes legal implications for group action”. An open-ended method of nominations has been used to measure social representations of world history across 24 societies, and characterize them as present-oriented, Western-centric tempered by ethnocentrism, and focused on warfare. Subsequently, quantitative analysis methods from cross-cultural psychology for determining structural equivalence have been employed in 30-35 societies to seek for (but fail to find) universal dimensions in perceptions of the most important events and people in world history. Three key Historical Event Scales have been developed, Calamities, Progress, and Resistance to Oppression that influence willingness to fight for the country. In terms of Person Profiles, Western university populations consist mainly of Secular and Faithful Idealists, who following a liberal democratic worldview rate scientific and humanitarian leaders highly, and dictators and strongmen very low. Mainland Chinese and Muslim university students have much higher proportions of Political Realists, who see power and the ruthlessness that goes with it a necessary part of the evolution of world history. Emergent global political culture is a reflection of these basic orientations towards World History.
