Seeing the world in ‘triangulation’: Research on Africa and Islam via Japan, in the wake of Junzo Kawada and Ippei Tanaka

For the 12th International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS 12), the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS (FFJ), the GIS Asie, the GIS Afrique, the IIAS, the Campus Condorcet and the Kyoto Seika University co-organized a double event (a round table and a side event) on the August 26th and 27th about the research on Africa and Islam via Japan, in the wake of Junzo Kawada and Ippei Tanaka. The aim of this event is to explore triangular approaches, with reference to the geodesic measurement method, by applying them to the methodological and theoretical positions of researchers in the production of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences. To do so, particular emphasis is laid on the work of Japanese anthropologist Junzo Kawada (1934-), one of the pioneers of African studies in Japan who has been working on the Mossi society of Burkina Faso, and Ippei Tanaka (1882-1934), one of the pioneers of Islamic studies in Japan, by considering Islam from the perspective of China and Chinese religious reconceptualisation, resulting in a pan-Asian vision that has ensued an integration of Islam that differs from Western-centric worldviews. The speakers put into perspective the research of Kawada, Tanaka and other researchers, by situating them within the intellectual stakes of their time and by remobilising their thinking to respond to today’s intellectual challenges, which requires a rethinking of the circulation and exchange of models.
