抄録: The demise of national character studies in the 1960s confirmed for anthropologists that people do not so easily and uniformly embody the nation. But such studies might have alternatively asked, do nations act like people? In representations in mass media and even in some rhetorical conventions of IR scholarship, nations often take on the quality of human subjects: they can be offended, ignored, angered, or, as Japan is sometimes depicted in relation to China, apologetic---though never really meaning it. Such personifications of the nation might be forgiven as "just a way of talking" if policy makers themselves weren't often found to adopt and be influenced by a similarly idiosyncratic perspective. Drawing on fourteen months of fieldwork among a variety of Japan's government agencies tasked with implementing cultural diplomacy programs toward the realization of Japan's cultural reserves of soft power, this paper explores possibilities for an anthropology of international relations. It does so by first, demonstrating how anxious affects generated through perceptions of shifting geopolitical power relations in East Asia are translated into policy, and second, investigating para-ethnographic sites for collaboration between anthropologists and IR practitioners whose imagined models of both the nation and the global overlap.
