1. Ikeuchi, Suma. "Futures Lost, Futures Found: Pentecostal Conversion as the Making of New Future, or Why Nikkei Brazilian Migrants Convert in Japan" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAS-in-Asia, Kyoto, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1104332_index.html>

Abstract: Pentecostal Christianity has been the fastest growing branch of Christianity for the last few decades and, in its process of global expansion, reached one of the most unlikely places: Japan. While Christians barely make up 1% of the Japanese majority, Pentecostalism has been flourishing among Brazilian migrants – the country’s fourth-largest group of foreign residents. This paper argues that future is a key concept in the analysis of Pentecostal conversion among the migrants. In doing so, it will also engage larger issues, such as racialization of identity, national kinship, and transnationalism.
The majority of Brazilians in Japan are second- and third-generation Japanese descendants. As “return migrants” to the supposed ancestral homeland, they have grappled with the images of the past, present, and future in complex ways. I will illustrate the ways in which conversion addresses common concerns regarding time among the migrant converts, such as the “loss of future” in their post-migration life, “putting aside living” for the future in Brazil, and restoration of “modern minority” status in Japan. Pentecostal conversion in this context is often experienced as an act of re-envisioning the new future in spiritual terms. That is, spiritual fellowship mediated by Pentecostalism helps migrants transcend racialized ethnicity delineated by the “Japanese blood,” past-oriented national kinship, and world of national boundaries where they have long been place in in-between space of hyphenated identity. I will conclude with an observation that the experience of living “between” nations has sensitized Nikkei migrants to the vision of “transnational transcendence.”

Abstract: Tulip Mania (1634-1637), and the South Sea Bubble and Mississippi Bubble (1719-1720) are often held out to be examples of crooked markets and reprehensible behavior in capitalist markets. The truth is somewhat different and more fascinating.

Tulip Mania was a brief and unimportant gyration in a newly fashioned futures market. The paper notes the Dutch reliance on futures and their use in the tulip market. It demonstrates that overall the market functioned well. Its failures arose from “design flaws” in market entry and the settlement process.

The South Sea and Mississippi Bubbles represented ambitious schemes that reached too far. The South Sea Company attempted to refund the English national debt, to the advantage of itself and the government. Corruption and manipulation played considerable roles in the bursting of the bubble. Neither was unusual for the era. Refunding was valid. Soon thereafter the Bank of England completed the refunding, providing England with a monetary system that was to support the British Empire. The Mississippi Company Bubble was nothing less than an audacious attempt to takeover French government finance and French foreign colonies. Modern monetary policy was key to the scheme. Cupidity, corruption and inadequate financial and legal institutions all played a role in that bubble’s collapse.

The financial and economic importance of these schemes is emphasized. It concludes the experiments were worthy and ultimately more important to finance and economics than the long-lived reputations for manipulation, corruption and lapsed legality.

"RNC Arrestees and Future Protest Participation: The Impact of Protest Arrests on Future Expected Protest Participation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, Grand Hyatt, Denver, Colorado, May 25, 2009 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p303619_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of protest-related arrests on future willingness to engage in protest based on data drawn from qualitative interviews with 27 randomly selected protesters who were arrested during the 2004 RNC. The paper begins by discussing the length and detention conditions for arrestees, which situates the reactions of arrestees to their confinement experiences. The paper then examines interview data, identifying and explaining trends that exist between the likelihood of future protest participation, and: (1) whether the participant intended/expected to be arrested or not; (2) severity of arrest and confinement experience; (3) case disposition (found guilty, case dismissed, adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, etc.); (4) prior arrest experiences; and (5) prior protest participation. Findings show that surprisingly, not all of these factors shaped willingness to protest in the future, but some markedly affect stated intentions. Finally, theoretical implications are discussed and findings are situated in terms of their generalizability for all RNC arrestees and other protest arrestees using quantitative data on all 2004 RNC arrestees.
