1. Fabbri, Davide. The San Marino Jinja and the globalisation of an ecological Shinto.

Degree: 2017, Leiden University

On the 21st June 2014, a Shintō shrine was inaugurated in the independent Republic of San Marino, as the second shrine outside the soil of Japan. The San Marino Jinja サンマリノ 神社 has been officially supported and recognised by Jinja Honchō 神社本庁, the administrative organisation that oversees about 80,000 Shintō shrines in Japan. However, what is mainly told about Shintō, still nowadays, is that it is the most antique and purely indigenous religion of Japan, a polytheism of immanent deities, defined as kami, strongly connected with the Japanese soil and centred around the sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami, and the imperial family descending directly from her. But, if Shintō is actually such a not inclusive religion, is it possible to define this foreign shrine legitimately and consistently Shintō, on a theoretical and practical perspective? In other words, if the claims of Shintō are the ones of a Japanese religion for Japanese people only, why the San Marino Jinja has been officially inaugurated and how does a Shintō shrine operate in a different country and cultural context? Actually, as it will be possible to discover through this research, most of the pillars on which Shintō is based are not historically consistent or accurate. It will be also possible to demonstrate how historically inaccurate it is to consider Shintō an indigenous religion in the first place. Therefore to deconstruct these claims, which could obstruct a legit globalisation of it, in this research Shintō will be discussed first from a theoretical point of view. Firstly by deconstructing the general held idea of Shinto itself, following the academical debate of the last fifty years. Secondly, by presenting the new rhetoric promoted by Jinja Honcho about Shinto as the “World's new religion of ecology”, in order to increase its national and international popularity. With this theoretical background it will be then possible to analyse the phenomenon on a practical perspective. In order to do so a comparative analysis will be featured: the Ise Jingu, the oldest model reference of jinja, will be compared to the San Marino site. The result will demonstrate whether the European shrine presents the same operating patterns as the native one, and therefore whether is a legit instance of a successful Shinto globalisation.

2. Łukaszewski, Marcin. Efektywność systemów politycznych demokratycznych mikropaństw europejskich na przełomie XX i XXI wieku .

Degree: 2015, Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu

Zasadniczym celem dysertacji jest ocena efektywności systemów politycznych czterech następujących państw: Andory, Liechtensteinu, Monako i San Marino. Tym samym stanowią one ramy terytorialne rozprawy. Druga część tematu – na przełomie XX i XXI wieku – implikuje umieszczenie zagadnienia badawczego w szerokim kontekście procesów integracyjnych i globalizacyjnych, z jakimi mamy do czynienia we współczesnym świecie. Ów kontekst został zawężony w temacie do przełomu XX i XXI wieku, w którym to we wszystkich z czterech państw nastąpiła daleko idąca demokratyzacja systemów politycznych. Kategoria mikropaństw europejskich, która znajduje się w temacie dysertacji ma wskazywać, że przedmiotem niniejszej pracy będą jedynie cztery wyżej wskazane państwa europejskie. Umieszczenie w temacie pracy przymiotnika demokratycznych oznacza, że w ramach terytorialnych dysertacji nie znajduje się najmniejsze państwo świata – Watykan. Advisors/Committee Members: Wallas, Tadeusz. Promotor (advisor).

3. Chan, Felicity Hwee-Hwa. Shades of conflict and conviviality: negotiating intercultural living and integration in Los Angeles's globalizing multi-ethnic spaces.

Degree: PhD, Policy, Planning and Development, 2013, University of Southern California

The contested process of sharing lives and space in contemporary culturally diverse globalizing cities challenges head-on the inadequacy of abstract discourses about integration that do not address the daily palpable experience of negotiating the tensions of diversity. These tensions are produced by the intersections of real and imagined differences in expectations, values and ways of life between different ethnicities and nationalities that often find expressions in and through their use of urban space. This new set of globalizing dynamics will inexorably require that policies, plans and designs of new urban interventions in globalizing multi-ethnic spaces consider these tensions carefully and their implications for intercultural integration. However, there is a relative silence in empirical scholarship about how inhabitants in diversity negotiate everyday integration and the kinds of urban space that facilitate intercultural understanding (ICU). ❧ This dissertation begins from the everyday multi-ethnic spaces of globalizing Los Angeles. I used mixed methods of cognitive mapping, ethnographic and semi-structured interviews and survey to understand the inhabitants’ experiences of negotiating the tensions of diversity through the sharing of social space, and to discover the existing possibilities of local neighborhood spaces for ICU. Framing the investigation with Lefebvre’s (1991) conceptualization of the production of social space as a dialectical triad of conceived-perceived-lived space in the form of an innovative rotating tetrahedron that combines with Lofland’s (1998) theory of the public realm and Lynch’s ([1960] 1998) method of cognitive mapping, I discuss how the sharing of social space is negotiated through nested boundaries, territories and routines in three multi-ethnic and multi-national settings of different socio-economic status (San Marino, Central Long Beach and Mid-Wilshire) within metropolitan Los Angeles. ❧ I found that ordinary Los Angelenos who live in multi-ethnic diversity maintain in their daily lives a fleeting and routinized co-presence with their neighbors of different ethnicities and nationalities, adopting a range of prosaic “negotiation” that includes “hunkering down” (Putnam 2007), adopting a “civility of indifference” (Bailey 1996), creating “comfort zones,” living in “ethnic bubbles,” trading racial slurs and harboring prejudices in private. Conviviality in diversity is occasional but rare, transient and does little to transform longer term relationships in existing inter-ethnic ties. The dissertation illustrates that these prosaic negotiations in shades of conflict and conviviality are in fact critical in shaping the formation of the sense of local belonging and the possibilities for intercultural living and integration in settings of diversity. ❧ Based on the findings, I argue that public space and institutional initiative and intervention is extremely important to the formation of an ethos and practice of intercultural living. To support this argument, the dissertation presents the… Advisors/Committee Members: Banerjee, Tridib K. (Committee Chair), Renteln, Alison Dundes (Committee Member), Hoskins, Janet A.
