Ars Vivendi E-mail Magazine No.113 (January 15, 2014)
We, Research Center for Ars Vivendi, would like to deliver you the
new year's greeting by Professor Masahiko Nishi, our director.
Happy New Year to all of our readers!
No woman or man is free from the destiny of being disabled, of
ageing, of illness or of displacement, and women are very
frequently compelled to (and compelled to pretend to voluntarily)
play the role of caretaker for others who are disabled, aged, ill
or displaced persons. That is why they have been and still are,
doubly concerned with these issues.
We, Research Center for Ars-Vivendi at Ritsumeikan University are
beginning our eighth year of activity from this January. We are
actually planning to connect more tightly our research achievements
with those of worldwide feminist movement, both academic and
social. It is important to do so, I believe, so that we can
contribute to the further progress of human and social sciences.
As always, we appreciate your continuing support and any advice
concerning our activities.
Director, Research Center for Ars Vivendi

We are eager to promote collaborative research projects with
disabled patients' advocacy groups, non-profit organizations, as
well as domestic and international researchers.
