Title
Sport and the Social Construction of Reality with Bodily Fundamentality : A Revised Ethnography of Japanese School Sports Day
File
Description

The main argument in this paper is to confirm theoretically that integration of nation is a domestic assimilation without people's awareness of compulsion, and that sport works as effective media for such assimilation. Sport as a festival, occasionally, provides 'experiencing that dazzling dissolution into totality (Bataille, 1945=1992:xxxi)' for concerned people. It somehow heals them and opens a social horizon anew. It is essential for festivity. This paper focuses on the school sports day in modern Japan, and tries to set up the theoretical framework to examine that a field of sport become an ideological apparatus for establishing nationality, and tries to interpret the contemporary ethnography as the effect of both healing and assimilation into nationality. It is brought to a conclusion that modern nation-state invented festivals anew with effective usage of the field of sport.
