従事しているプロジェクト研究
Shared Coasts, Divided Historiographies Mobilizing People, Ideas, and Artifacts in the East Asian Mediterranean
2022.10~2025.08, 代表者:Anton Schweizer, Gloria Yu Yang (Kyushu University), Magdalena Kolodijei (Toyo Eiwa University), Kyushu University (IMAP), Getty Foundation
This project aims at bringing together the next generation of art historians from the “East Asian Mediterranean”—here conceived as a geographic, historical, and cultural space of connections centering around the regions of Kyushu, Okinawa, Taiwan, and South Korea. We will explore exchanges of people, ideas, and artifacts in this geographical region during two historical periods, the First (1500–1850) and Second (1850–1945) Global Ages, respectively. We will revisit a history of continuous interaction, exchange, and transculturation in the fields of art, historiography, visual and material culture.
The project will bring together about 15 junior academics, primarily affiliated with an institution in or researching a topic related to East Asia, for a period of two-years, beginning in the fall of 2023. We will hold a series of lectures and reading workshops, embark on two travel seminars in the region of the “East Asian Mediterranean,” and build a digital mapping platform..
Transcultural Exchanges: Mapping Movement of Art, Ideas, and People in Asia
2022.02~2022.02, 代表者:Anton Schweizer & Gloria Yu Yang; Magdalena Kolodijei (Tokyo University), Kyushu University (IMAP), Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Germany, China, USA.
Beyond the Southern Barbarians: Repositioning Japan in the First Global Age
2019.09~2022.03, 代表者:Anton Schweizer (Kyushu University) and Mimi Hall Yiengpruksawan (Yale University), Kyushu University and Yale University, Yale University, Council on East Asian Studies; Kyushu University Faculty of Humanities; Kyushu University Asia Oceania Cluster
This interdisciplinary research hub explores Japan’s role in the First Global Age through a comprehensive investigation of its cultural and intellectual production from about 1550 to 1700. Researchers from top-institutions around the world and from a wide disciplinary range, bridging the classical humanities (history, art history, literature, religious studies, intellectual history) and history of science (astronomy, cartography, military technology), will convene for a major conference at Kyudai.
The primary goal of this project is to establish an international research hub at Kyushu University that will enable a sustained cooperation with Yale University (the principal partner for organizing the two conferences; THE World Ranking place 8) and other cooperating institutions in the US, Europe, and Asia. The thus created network will continue to be active for years after the project has ended and prompt future returns to and exchanges within and beyond Kyudai..
The Azuchi Castle Screens Research Project
2018.06~2022.05, 代表者:Paola Cavaliere, Osaka University, Sugimoto Studio
The goal of this project is to discover the fate of the Azuchi Castle folding screens or any new sources that might shed light on their character. This set of paintings executed by Kanō Eitoku and depicting Oda Nobunaga’s palatial castle home were bestowed to Pope Gregory XIII via the Jesuits in 1585. The mystery of their subsequent disappearance from record has attracted many, but there has been never been a sustained, systematic, and international effort to this end. This project intends to take on this challenge by following up on the work of a 2004-7 search effort. We intend to comb and survey European libraries and archives for records related to these priceless artifacts. New leads on their character and whereabouts will be searched for and pursued by an international and multi-disciplinary team of scholars. These efforts will culminate in a symposium to be held in 2022 as well as a trilingual publication documenting the process and discoveries made..
1550~1650年の日本における外来要素
2018.08~2020.03, 代表者:Anton Schweizer, Kyushu University, IMAP, Kakenhi
The core question to the proposed project is: How did Japan’s encounter with foreign materials and manufacturing technologies during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries change the way art and architecture were made and appreciated? This research and workshop collaboration with top scholars in the fields of art history and material culture will secure a strong basis for a larger, international research venture that investigates in ground-breaking ways through international workshops and future publications Japan’s changing array of imported and domestic visual, creative, and artistic materials (“material culture”) during the so-called “First Global Age.” Three case studies—castle walls; feathers on military attire; painted depictions of “Japanese as foreigners”—provide a unique foundation for an open-access worldwide web-based “QMC” databank, the first of its kind..
The Many Shapes of Meaning: Object and Performance in Asia Across Time
2018.05~2020.05, 代表者:Cynthea J. Bogel, Kyushu University, Research Hub for the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Interdisciplinary Studies, Kyushu University (RINK)
This interdisciplinary research-hub project explores the circulation of material objects and performance cultures throughout Asia. Material objects and structures will include buildings, statues, paintings, and crafts; performance cultures will include theatrical genres, musical styles, and embodied practices in a variety of spatial and temporal contexts. We will bring together top researchers from around the world with different academic backgrounds, including art historians, literary scholars, musicologists, performance studies scholars, ritual practitioners, and historians. As an English-language graduate program comprised of five non-Japanese but Japanese-fluent faculty members researching in Japan fields, we IMAP and IDOC faculty (International MA Program in Japanese Humanities, International Doctorate in Japanese Humanities) will strive to pair our knowledge with that of Japanese and non-Japanese colleagues within Kyudai and globally. The project will encourage a holistic rethinking of Asian humanities, resulting in the formulation of new research trajectories and related publications that move beyond national and disciplinary borders. It will introduce Japanese and non-Japanese Kyudai faculty to a global audience.
In the first year we will build a research network through the following endeavors:
• Host two international pre-conferences at two venues, National University of Singapore and Kyudai. Top researchers from Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Europe, and the US will be invited to present papers. A balance of emerging younger voices in each field and established senior scholars will be achieved.
• Collect and edit the most suitable papers from the two pre-conferences to be published in a special issue of The Journal of Asian Humanities at Kyushu University (JAH-Q), a peer-reviewed (査読) English-language international journal of the Faculty of Humanities.
In the second year we will hold a major international symposium in September 2019. As with the pre-conferences, several papers will be published in JAH-Q. Additionally, we will collect a group of thematically coherent papers for an essays volume to be published by an international publisher.

主要原著論文
1. Anton Schweizer, “Puppets for the Margravine: Japanese Ephemera and their (Re)Construction in Eighteenth-Century Chinoiserie.”, 21: Inquiries into Art, History, and the Visual 2:1 (Spring, 2021), pp. 3-46., 2, 1, 3-46, 2021.04, This article introduces a group of 23 textile appliqués, or oshi-e – scraps of padded and painted fabric applied to a support of papier mâché – that were manufactured in Japan during the final decades of the seventeenth century. The pieces were soon transferred to Europe and collected by Sibylla Augusta Margravine of Baden (1675–1733). One of Germany’s early advocates of the stylistic idiom of chinoiserie, by 1723 Sibylla had integrated the pieces into the decoration of her newly erected mansion Favorite near Rastatt.

This article has two foci. First, it contextualizes the genre of textile appliqués within its Japanese culture of origin where such items served as ephemeral festival decoration, fashionable accessories, and tools of sophisticated pastime in the milieu of urban merchants. Secondly, the article explores practical and theoretical aspects of intercultural transfer and discusses the fundamental re-reading of transferred artifacts against the background of chinoiserie in central Europe.

The appliqués at Schloss Favorite are significant in several respects. They count among the oldest surviving examples of this genre worldwide. They become even more valuable from the fact that their maker, Fujiya Saburōbei, can be unambiguously identified from existent documentation as a leading manufacturer of oshi-e and purveyor to the Dutch East India Company. While there is no conclusive evidence, there is a strong possibility that the appliqués at Schloss Favorite came to Europe as private merchandise of the famous traveler and author, Engelbert Kaempfer (1651–1716). Lastly, the pieces constitute exceedingly rare material evidence for the role of textiles and other ephemera in both early modern Japan and Europe as well as related practices of collecting and display..
