Profile My research interest is qualitative research in educational field. Using research methods such as interviews and participant observation, we will explore the practical meaning in the educational fields. We use narrative analysis and discourse analysis in the analysis of field data. This method is called narrative approach in human sciences. In particular, J. S. Bruner's work is in the theoretical background of my research. So my research includes research on J. S. Bruner's history of thought. People live by using words and symbols to giving meaning various events that they encounter in their daily lives. I call my research projects "Narrative Cultural Psychology" an approach that seeks to approach people's lives and minds through narratives.
