Congratulations to Dr. Mark Hudson, who has some BHAP news to share!

1. I have a new affiliation as Director of a new Research Institute for Sustainable Environments and Cultures at my university. It is a virtual Institute and we don't have a building yet!

2. I will give a couple of lectures on the Ainu at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia on March 11-12

3. I am attaching a couple of recent publications for the record.

The Encyclopedia of Global Human Migration, Edited by Immanuel Ness. © 2013 Blackwell Publishing Ltd. Published 2013 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd. DOI: 10.1002/9781444351071.wbeghm828

Chapter title: Japan: archaeology, by Mark J. Hudson

This chapter presents archaeological evidence for Jōmon and Yayoi migration within and to Japan. These islands had a remarkable Holocene prehistory that reflected its temperate and maritime location, often developing cultural traditions quite different from those of the East Asian mainland.

The Wiley Migrations chapter apparently should not be posted on the web site but I would be happy to send a copy to anyone who is interested. hudsonm@nisikyu-u.ac.jp

Title: ‘Austronesian' and ‘Jomon' identities in the Neolithic of the Ryukyu Islands
Mark J. Hudson. University of West Kyushu, Kanzaki, Saga Prefecture, JP

ABSTRACT - This paper examines Neolithic cultural identities in the Ryukyu Islands of southwest Japan. It is argued that there were two different identities in this archipelago: a ‘Jomon' identity in the northern and central Ryukyus and an ‘Austronesian' identity in the southern Ryukyus. These identities were constructed despite broad similarities in subsistence adaptation in both cultural zones.
