*****Invitational Lecture***** The 7 Layers of Confusion Keyo University, Tokyo, May 9, 2015 Hosted by: Keio University Institute of East Asian Studies (KIEAS,http://www.kieas.keio.ac.jp/english/index.html) and KIEAS 2015 Academic Project “Exploring Historical Landscapology : A New Challenge through Articulation of Historical Ecology and Historical Anthropology of Asian and Pacific Societies”(EHL) Land is one of the most talked about topics among residents of illegal settlements in Honiara today. They talk about land because it is on land that they live, but they currently do note feel secure, because land in Honiara nowadays is a sort of centrifugal hotspot of many tensions. So, the first reason why I decided to concentrate on land is that land is a hot topic in the capital city of Solomon Islands. It was hot before my arrival, it was hot during my fieldwork, and it is hot now, as we will see. The second reason is that land in Honiara is an extremely fertile research topic for the anthropological study of value. To anticipate the argument that I will develop in the lecture different 'so to say' stakeholders value land in different ways, and unless such differences are understood in depth, in the nitty-gritty details of daily tensions and negotiations, it will be extremely difficult for these stakeholders to reach their objectives. In particular, the indigenous landowners in Guadalcanal want to make money out of their land, the state wants to implement development projects on the land, and the people of Gilbert Camp want to put down roots in the land without the constant concern of being eradicated. Disentangling and understanding these different perspectives on land is possible, but first we must go through what I called "the 7 layers of confusion on the issue of land". The reason why I chose the term confusion is that the term "konfius", the Solomon Islands Pidgin term "konfius" was used by one of the Gilbert Camp settlers during a meeting with government officials. The people who attended this meeting could not see the issue of land clearly, and they were seeking answers to at least seven crucial questions. In this lecture, I go through these seven key questions and attempt to understand how we can possibly give them an answer, or at least clarify the issue of land.
