- Journal de la société des américanistes (JSA) [abstracts]
Founded in 1896, JSA is a scientific journal with an international reputation. Devoted to Amerindian societies and cultures, considered in the totality of their history, JSA owes its originality and its richness to a disciplinary openness that leads to the encounter of prehistory, archaeology, ethno history, ethnology, ethno-linguistics and more rarely, sociology and biological anthropology, in its pages. A similar spirit of openness characterizes the languages used by the journal: French, English, Spanish, and Portuguese, besides Indian languages. Specialised, but resolutely turning its back on the compartmentalisation of disciplines, JSA's readers are anthropologists working on native America.

The study is focused on (1) the effects of postwar ethnocentric Japanese nationalism in the 1960s and 1970s on history textbooks, and (2) the new movement of history education toward "transnationalism" after the mid-1980s.
