We are pleased to announce the third “Japan in the World and the World in Japan: A Methodological Approach” international symposium. This year’s event will be held at the Center for Japanese Language and Culture, Osaka University (Minoh Campus), on March 3rd and 4th, 2018.
The symposium focuses on the secondary and tertiary level instruction of subjects related to Japan (history, culture, literature, etc) in a cosmopolitan way that aims to place knowledge in the context of an internationally-oriented education, appropriate in this age of super-globalization. We invite proposals for:
1) pedagogically-based papers and panels on the instruction of content courses;
2) presentations introducing novel syllabi, teaching methods and materials;
3) demo lessons centred on content-based class activities.
Please submit a 250-word abstract, along with a 50-word presenter bio and contact information, by December 31, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important Dates: Abstract proposal: December 31, 2017
Notification of result: January 31, 2018
Registration: by February 20, 2018
You can see the programme and abstracts of the presentations given at the previous symposium (December 3-4, 2016, Otemae University) on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Japanintheworld/
A selection of the papers presented will soon be available as a peer-reviewed volume on Otemae University’s online repository.
