1. Profile,

Brief Bio
Yutaka Nakamura is a tenured associate professor at Tama Art University in Japan. He is also a contributing researcher at Transtechnology Research at University of Plymouth, UK, a visiting researcher at Institute of Social Sciences at Chuo University in Japan, and an organizer of Ningengaku-kobo [Atelier Anrhtopology]. Trained in the field of cultural anthropology, he has conducted his fieldwork among African-American Muslim communities in Harlem, New York. More recently he started his new project that engages in the cultural expressions and movements in the socio-cultural “margins” as well as in the emergent field of design anthropology both in the US and Japan. His research topics include violence, social pain and suffering, cultural expressions and movements, modes of communication and discommunication, mechanisms of discrimination and conflicts, and social design.

Recent Research Interests
In 2015, Yutaka published an ethnography, Zankyo no Harlem [Reverberated Harlem: Voices of Muslims on the Street] (Editorial Republica, 2015), based on his fieldwork in Harlem, NY, which began almost a year after 9.11, when the socio-political atmosphere in the city was still tense. The book focused on the frustration and anger among African-American Muslim communities and explored historical as well as socio-cultural contexts surrounding their often strong and emotional language. In doing so, the book dealt with such topics as the position of archive in their historiography, the force of gentrification in the redevelopment and the Columbia University’s campus expansion, and the conflicts and discommunication with other Muslims and non-Muslims, as well as among themselves.

In 2016, Yutaka collaborated with other creators from various genres – artist, designer, poet, film director, photographer etc. – and published an edited book on art, design, and creativity, Geijyutsu no Jyugyou [Lectures on Art: Behind Creativity] (Koubundou, 2016). Ever since he started teaching at Tama Art University in 2008, his exploration into the field of art and design has begun. The book is his first attempt to investigate what is behind creativity and explore some of the selective creators’ ways of seeing and beings in the world in the contemporary Japanese society.

Yutaka has also been collaborating with a New York based photographer, Makoto Matsuo, and conducting fieldwork in the socio-cultural “margins” of the U.S. In this project, his focus is on the cultural expressions and movements especially by the Native Americans, African-Americans and other cultural creatives in relation to violence and social pain and suffering. Ever since the beginning of the project in 2011, Yutaka and Makoto have visited the Seminole communities in Florida, Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma, Pueblo communities in New Mexico, Native Hawaiian community in Molokai, cultural creatives in Big Island, local communities in Alaska, Leach Lake Indian Reservations in Minnesota, Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North and South Dakota, Charlottesville in Virginia, Ferguson in Missouri, and others. His travel writings together with Makoto’s photographs are published in the form of booklet called Lost and Found (Ningengaku-kobo [Atelier Anthropology]). The booklet is a collaborative effort by Yutaka and other students and graduates from Tama Art University as well as other universities in Japan.
