Heidi Fung is Research Fellow/Professor at the Institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. She received her doctoral degree from the Committee on Human Development at the University of Chicago. She has taught in the Department of Psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and has been a visiting scholar at the Harvard-Yenching Institute and the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University. As a developmental and cultural psychologist by training, Dr. Fung has long been interested in how to situate life‐span human development in socio‐cultural contexts. Her research involves the socialization of emotion, daily disciplinary and moral training practices, childrearing beliefs across cultures, and narrative practices at home. More recently, she has extended her interest to the life stories of Vietnamese marriage migrants in Taiwan and how they socialize their children born to Taiwanese men.
Endo Yasuo’s work focuses on area studies, specifically the American experience of encountering different nations and peoples. His publications include Multicultural America: Rethinking the National Identity (University of Tokyo Press, 1999), Dimensions of Creoleness: Caribbean Area Studies (University of Tokyo Press, 2000) and America and the Pacific: from Conflict to Coexistence (Sairyu-sha, 2004). Professor Endo’s research has also been published in general textbooks: his writings on Commodore Perry and his “Black Ships” have appeared in ACTA ASIATICA (2007) and A Modern History for East Asian People (University of Tokyo Press, 2009). In April 2010, he moved to the Institute of Advanced Global Studies at the University of Tokyo and began the intellectual adventure of interweaving area studies with global studies. His current research topics are comparisons of anti-Americanism and anti-modernism, and the history of denizenship in the modern world.
