Descrizione dell'attività di ricerca svolta nel triennio e gli obiettivi futuri

Between 2015 and 2017, I have led many original research and publication initiatives. I have been a key figure in Ryukyuan linguistics and in the internationalization of Japanese sociolinguistics. In the former case, I have worked and cooperated with numerous scholars around the world who specialize in the study of language diversity, and in the latter case with specialists on Japanese language and society around the world. I am currently also working on ways to adapt sociolinguistic theory to better fit contemporary societies, and am pushing for a paradigm change in language education, arguing that the idea of “wellbeing” should also play a central role in this field. My field of work is centered on Japanese sociolinguistics and Ryukyuan linguistics, but I have also worked in Japanese youth studies and on sociolinguistics theory. My work is international, highly visible and has a strong impact on other researchers.

In the future, I seek to develop in particular my work on problems of societal multilingualism in Japan, illustrating and studying the issues below in more detail. I work on endangered languages (in particular, the Ryukyus) and on global cities (in particular Tokyo):
• Language diversity loss is always the result of a transformation of the socio-economic organization of communities, which is triggered through contact (colonization, modernization, globalization). Language diversity loss occurs when contact is based on and mediated by power differentials.
• The loss of language diversity hints at larger societal problems. Language diversity relates directly to issues of equality and inequality and is so hard to sustain because “being diverse” often serves as a basis for being treated “less favourably”.
• Language diversity is diminished around the world because modernist ideology stresses the idea of “equality through unity” and seeks to attain “unity through uniformity”. Efforts toward upward social mobility lead to the assimilation of minority groups to dominant language and culture, rendering their languages largely without significant social functions. The prediction of language diversity is very easy: no function, no future.
• The loss of language diversity coincides with an erosion of the knowledge encoded in the declining language. Languages are systems of experiences, where the material and the symbolic world intersect. This is why language loss affects how we make meaning of the world and of our lives. There is nothing to be gained from language diversity loss, and much more is lost than language alone.
• Social change is an effect of language diversity loss. People experiencing language shift become uprooted and collectively experience hardships. This is why social problems are more frequent and profound among communities undergoing language shift and language loss. There is a need to focus on the interrelations between language maintenance and loss on the one hand, and social wellbeing on the other.
• Nowhere can more contradiction to the modern language regime be found than in large cities, the former being homogenous, monotonous and clear and the latter being plural, diverse and ambivalent. This stark contrast deserves our attention, too, because the world is rapidly urbanizing. City people come into daily contact with strangers having different belief systems, behavioral norms, day-to-day rituals and linguistic practices, and they must somehow learn “to get along” for the city to function. New ways of communicating are being devised in cities, making them incubators for new diversity in language.
This research will result in new publications and I seek to establish a research project on the topic of societal multilingualism in Japan. I am currently busy concluding the Routledge Handbook of Japanese Sociolinguistics, which will be published in spring 2019. I plan to afterwards turn to research grant proposal writing.
