A special issue on Social Stratification Studies in East Asia has been out from the Asian Journal of Social Science (AJSS) (Volume 39, No.1, 2011).

Koichi Hasegawa and I have selected and edited 5 enthusiastic research papers presented at the Tohoku University-National University of Singapore Joint Forum of Sociology and Social Stratification Studies held in Singapore back in February 2009.

Please find an introductory essay here: "Inequalities and Disparities in Globalised Asia" (AJSS 39(1), 2011).

Families in Asia: Home and Kin

| 1 Comment

Families in Asia: Home and Kin by Stella Quah is now out for its second edition.

I read this first edition, presented it in my class as a graduate student in the U.S., wrote a review for its second edition recommendation to Routledge, Tayler & Francis, used part of this book when I taught Sociology of the Family, met the author here in Singapore, and finally heard from her that the second edition is out!

『アジアの家族ー家庭と親族』というシンガポール国立大学のステラ・クオー先生のご本の第2版が出版になりました。

アメリカの院生時代にフィリス・モーエン先生から進められて読んで、授業で発表して、受け持った家族社会学の授業で使ったり、出版社の第2版出版のための書評を書いたりと、いろいろなつながりがありましたが、今回お会いしたら第2版が出版になったとのことでした。感慨深い。

In Singapore this ad is for Aussie pork.

This Mr. Pink Pig painted on a bus tells people on the street how cool and always chilled he is. First, I did not get what this is about. A few seconds later, I realized this was an eventually eaten pig or Mr. Pork-to-be... I really do not have words for you, Mr. Cool...

シンガポールで今私が一番気になる広告です。バスの車体に掲載されているオーストラリア産豚肉の宣伝。豚くんが「僕はカッコイイ、僕は落ち着いててイイ感じ。(僕は冷たい、僕は冷凍されている)」って宣言しています。食べられるあなたが宣伝しちゃってて、なんとも言えない・・・。
