ABSTRACT

This paper studies magazine media published by the Jeju Islanders in Japan after World War II, and considers the significance of their media activities along with a bibliography of the publications in Japan. The Jeju Provincial People’s Association, which is based in the Kanto and Kansai regions, has led the media activities of the Jeju Islanders in Japan. From the various types of the journal published by the Jeju Provincial People’s Association, I confirmed that they sought to maintain their identity as Jeju Islanders, deepen the unity and friendship among their members, and seek a path that would lead to the economic development of Jeju Island. On the other hand, in the group of Jeju Islanders in Japan, ther is a Tamra Study Group that was formed to pursue the history and culture of Jeju Island. "Tamra Communication Study" and "Jeju Island" published by Tamra Study Group are the magazines which transmit it toward the outside world unlike the Journal of the friendship organization. Especially in the case of "Jeju Island", the island’s locality was transmitted to Japanese society, and it functioned as translocal network through cooperation with Jeju Island. Their media activities have played a significant role in the process of preserving regional identity and forming locality in the Japan Society of Jeju Islanders. The media activity of the Jeju Islanders in Japan who are creating a unique locality against the historical tide of globalization is a special phenomenon unprecedented in the magazine media history of Zainichi Koreans.
