The Image of the American Family in the Presidential Election
Yukari Kawahara
Professor, Faculty of Letters, Arts and Sciences, Waseda University
Have you ever heard the expression, family values? This term, while unfamiliar to people in Japan, has become one of the major issues in the U.S. presidential election.
When I arrived at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York in early September, a heated discussion about the national conventions of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party was being displayed on a big screen in the airport. In fact, the close election race, said to be split fifty-fifty between the two parties, has drawn the attention of not only political commentators in the media, but also a large number of American citizens, and I saw many cars displaying bumper stickers for either Obama or Romney throughout the city.

Refining environmental purification technology through the engineering application of microscopic interface phenomena
Chiharu Tokoro
Associate Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Waseda University
My specialty is research for the separation and elimination of pollutants in the environmental field, as well as separation and collection of valuable metals during the recycling process. Although resource engineering is the base of my research, my motto is to refine technology through further scientific exploration of substance phenomena, as well as to be a leader in the discovery of important new technology which has yet to be practically applied.

Desired Results of the Polarization of Japanese Cinema
Sho Miyake's Playback
Jinshi Fujii
Associate Professor, Faculty of Letters, Arts and Sciences, Waseda University (School of Humanities and Social Sciences)
The polarization of Japanese cinema has been talked about for a long time. On the one hand, there is the mass production of major movies based on the production committee method led by television stations and advertising companies and, on the other hand, there is an overproduction of small-scale films that are only shown on a single screen. The gap between these two sides has been increasing in recent years and it can no longer be said that the people inhabiting the cinema industry entirely grasp this situation.

From Taiwan to WASEDA
Shiyo Chin
4th year student in the School of International Liberal Studies
I am from Taipei in Taiwan. Three years ago I made the decision to study abroad in Japan because of my interest in the country and an attraction to the lifestyle of the nation. Since coming to Japan, I have been involved in a variety of activities not only to study Japanese but also because I wanted to learn more about the culture and customs of Japan.
