About Fusae Takasaki Ivarsson

 Researcher, Teacher

Background

Fusae Ivarsson earned her Ph.D. at the University of Gothenburg in 2016, writing her dissertation A Study of the L2 Kanji Learning Process: Analysis of Reading and Writing Errors of Swedish Learners in Comparison with Level-matched Japanese Schoolchildren.

The dissertation analyses reading and writing errors of kanji (Chinese characters used to write the Japanese language) collected from Swedish learners of Japanese and Japanese schoolchildren who have learned the same number of kanji and compare cognitive types and occurrence tendencies of the two groups’ errors for the purpose of investigating cognitive characteristics of Swedish learners' kanji learning process.

Research

Fusae Ivarsson's research interests centre on cognitive aspects of the kanji learning process of students with alphabetic backgrounds.

She is also interested in a broader range of cross-writing system issues in the field of second language (L2) writing systems, especially multi-scriptorial characteristics of the Japanese writing system and their application to L2 Japanese teaching.

She is currently planning a project regarding ”virtual writing” (orthographic deviations with role language-like effects) used in manga (Japanese comics). 

Virtual writing can be regarded as an orthographic version of role language (yakuwarigo, a.k.a. “virtual Japanese”) according to Kinsui (2003/2017).

Virtual writing is defined as orthographic deviations (e.g. transliteration with another script such as writing kanji-words in hiragana or hiragana-words in katakana, special use of furigana or selective use of text orientation) in association with special expressive effects such as emphasis on childishness/
dumbfoundedness/accents, clarification of situations, suggestion of atmosphere or indication of foreign languages.

It is the complex and flexible multiscriptual characteristics of the Japanese writing system that make a variety of virtual writing effective.

Virtual writing is often used in manga partly because manga strives to express live-feelings visually, partly because language of manga carries a lighter load of information thanks to coexisting pictures and is not as bound by the normal rules of writing as ordinary texts are.

Teaching

Fusae Ivarsson has been teaching Japanese at the University of Gothenburg since 1997.
