Dear Ann,

I came across a relevant research presented at a communication studies seminar at Seijyo University and this is from 2006:


Go to:  メディアとことば研究会

”1 発表者  宮副ウォン 裕子(桜美林大学大学院国際学研究科教授)
2 タイトル  ジャンルとしての対談にみられる説得ストラテジー

3 キーワード  対談、対談者、オーディエンス、編集、説得のストラテジー


 本発表では、日本のさまざまな雑誌によく見られ、他の言語の雑誌ではあまり見られない「対談」というジャンルを取り上げる。対談者は読者を真のオーディエンスとして意識しながら、即興で、共同してジャンルを作り上げ、最終的に編集され出版されている。本研究では、印刷メディアの対談の中に、読者を意識した説得ストラテジーがどのように使われているかを分析・考察する。考察対象のデータは二人の対談者によるもので、1)エンターテイメント誌の俳優同士の対談(4種)、2)一般週刊誌の対談(インタービュー者とゲスト)(4 種)、3)学術的内容にかかわる対談(4種)である。分析の結果、対談内容の異なり、対談者の関係、読者の異なりなどにより、読者を意識した説得ストラテジーが使用されていることが明らかになった。"

  Subject: re: taidan histories

  Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions on taidan reading. 

  I guess in the realm of sokkibun, Fukuzawa would be another example, and he does weigh in on current affairs--insofar as tall tales about the high seas and evading bakumatsu death threats constitute current affairs.

  Miyoshi is also an interesting thought; I will have to follow up on that. 

  And Murakami...where to begin. After having read his 900-page magnum opus on fascist survivalists in the fin-de-siècle Arctic, I think his TV show might make me explode. But I do think he is a key figure in recent taidan history, as he certainly has his finger on the pulse of all the latest 3-men kiji and shakai mondai. Not to mention his place in film history, given that Miike's Audition was based on one of his novels, to cite just one link.

  Dear Anne,
  I've read a taidan on Ozaki Koyo's Gold Demon (Konjiki yasha) in which Mori Ogai and Koyo himself participated that dates from 1898 or 1899. So the genre goes at least that far back. They were discussing the novel in relation to female gender roles, images of capitalism in world literature, Nietzsche, and contemporary German trends toward connecting morality and biology. They weren't commenting on public affairs per se, though, as your post-war example discusses.

  As for the technology used in recording or transcribing the discussion, I imagine sokkibun shorthand is the method most likely to have been used though I have no hard evidence for this and have never seen a discussion of the matter. As you will recall, sokkibun had been widely institutionalized in literary, legal, and journalistic contexts by then. Rimbara, Miller, and Vincent have all written on sokkibun in relation to late nineteenth century Japanese literature.

  Good morning,

  I'm wondering if anyone has ever read any good histories or sketches of the genre of the taidan. I'm sure many of you have your favorite taidan "highlights and lowlifes," as I do. And I read a piece a while back about Etô Jun and Ôe Kenzaburô as taidan pioneers, in the sense of weighing in, as artistes, on public events and current affairs, especially vis-a-vis cultural nationalism and what postwar literature should be or do. It would probably be too much to ask for references that describe the use of recording and documenting technologies (e.g. film and tape), their impact on print culture and the shapes it takes (such as taidans), but if anything of that general angle comes to mind, I'd be especially interested in hearing about it.

  Thanks for any leads!
