About the Symposium
An international symposium on teaching Japanese Studies and Japan-related topics around the world.
The “Japan-in-the-World Forum” is an organization of young researchers and instructors seeking to establish a network/ discussion forum for young researchers and instructors, focusing on the teaching of Japanese-related subjects in English or other foreign languages, as part of (Japanese) tertiary education. The purpose of this 4th international symposium is to create a platform for exchanging ideas about our role in the Japanese academia, but also for sharing teaching materials and methods appropriate in the internationally-oriented classroom of today and tomorrow.
The 15 February and 16 February are open to researchers and instructors working in this area. The 17 February is a closed event, for speakers only.
