四カ国に散在する一次資料から史実を掘り起こす : ノーベル平和賞と日本についての研究から


Discovering historical evidences at archives across four countries : a study on the Nobel peace price and Japan

A historical study across geopolitically different countries must be examined through considering their backgrounds and relations with each country. However, it demands enormous tasks and time for researching and evaluating historical evidences due to different languages, and political, social and cultural backgrounds. In this session, I would like to introduce the outline of my study on The Nobel Peace Prize of the year 1974 and Japan, and share my experiences as researcher how I searched those historical evidences in 4 countries (Norway, Britain, U.S and Japan) to support the study.
