Amano Saki (Second-year doctorate in the Department of Japanese Literature and Language, Graduate School of Literature, under Professor Komatsu Yasuhiko) received the "Research Presentation Promotion Award" at the 123rd Summer Contest of the Association for the Study of Japanese Language and Literature held from Saturday, June 5, 2021 to Sunday, June 6, 2021.
The Association for the Study of Japanese Language and Literature was established on January 15, 1956 with the aim of promoting research on Japanese language literature at various universities and mutual communication among the Japanese Language and Literature Societies at each university.
The "Research Presentation Promotion Award" is awarded to one outstanding research presentation made by a young researcher at the competition. Ms. Amano's research presentation title was "Reexamination of the historical significance of ‘oral recitation’ and ‘oral’". She proposed a new research method to sort out the history of the terms of "oral recitation" and "oral" in Japanese literature and folklore from the Meiji era to the Taisho era and to overcome the dichotomous conflict of written characters/speech. The award ceremony was held online from 15:30 on Sunday, June 6, during which there was an award speech from Ms. Amano.
