|現在行っている研究 Current Research|
|My current research focuses on the classed nature of transnational mobilities of Asian families in relation to their children's international schooling. In particular, I'm interested in affluent Japanese families' diversifying mobility patterns--not only in the English-speaking "West", such as the United States, but also in Asian countries. I am currently conducting comparative research on Japanese families who send their children to English-speaking schools in Tokyo (Japan), Johor Bahru (Malaysia), and Honolulu (USA), with the objective of revealing non nationally-bound education strategies for class mobility generated by structural and institutional changes.
