Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In October 1958 seven Japanese writers traveled to Tashkent for the first Conference of Afro-Asian Writers, a week-long meeting with representatives from 35 independent countries. The conference built on a convention of Asian writers in New Delhi in 1956 and more broadly on the spirit of cooperation behind the Conference of African and Asian Nations convened in Bandung in 1955. It resulted in creation of the Permanent Bureau of Afro-Asian Writers, whose 10-member board included a seat for Japan.

Led by Ito Sei, members of the Japanese delegation spoke in the general assembly and smaller sessions. They took the occasion as a chance to present Japanese writers as natural compatriots of those from newly independent states. Noma Hiroshi, for one, asserted that Japanese writers opposed both the Japanese and American empires from the beginning. Numerous articles that appeared after the conference, however, confronted the larger issues at hand, with Kato Shuichi and Nakano Shigeharu, for example, each pointing out that Japan, with its unresolved history of colonialism, hardly could claim a place in the anti-colonial ranks. Drawing from speeches at the conference and articles published in its wake, this paper examines the role it played in efforts to create an anti-colonial literary internationalism in Japan.

Abstract: The declining power of unions is one defining characteristic of civil societies in post-industrial, advanced capitalist countries. In the literature, structural changes in the economy, and variations in domestic institutional arrangements are identified as the most important factors to explain the weakened power of labor organizations. Workers today are not only a more heterogonous group in terms of their interests and income, but the lines that separate employers and employees are increasingly indistinct. Moreover, mobility of factors has trivialized the links between time and space, causing businesses to turn away from strict hierarchies and toward less centralized organizational structures. As a result of these new networks, it has never been more difficult to initiate collective action and build labor solidarity; however there have been notable instances of bargaining successes for labor. The successful 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike cost the entertainment industry billions. Within this context, we utilize original data provided by the WGA-West in order to understand the dynamics of the strike. Our focus is to understand the factors that explain the support of the members of the guild – an extremely diverse group – in terms of their income and concomitant roles in the industry as producers, directors, or actors. We end with a discussion of the generalizability of our findings to other countries and sectors.
