*14th Annual International Conference on Japanese Studies
**Nihongo in Globalization: Language Education, Societies and Power

**24-25 January 2014
Auditorium of the Ricardo and Dr. Rosita Leong Hall
Ateneo de Manila University

Over the last few decades, there has been a remarkable change in the
situation of second/foreign language education. Multiculturalism and
multilingualism have been adopted in many countries, and a demand for
translingual competence has been increasing along with globalization and
the consequent cross-border phenomena in the world. The creation of the
Common European Framework of References for Languages and the following JF
Standards has brought about an immense impact on the practice in
pedagogical settings of second/foreign languages. With this background, the
conference is a response to the urgent need to foster an extensive and
profound understanding of second/foreign language, and develop theories and
methodologies of language research relevant to the current state and future

The guest speakers include: Prof. Katsumi Kakazu (National Chengchi
University), Ms. Harumi Kimura (Hitotsubashi University), Prof. Hiroyuki
Nomoto (Tokyo Metropolitan University), and Prof. Shigenori Wakabayashi
(Chuo University).

The conference organizers welcome paper submissions that are aligned with
this year's conference theme. It hopes to generate discussion that aims to
enhance knowledge on language, innovate practice of language teaching, and
direct language research toward multicultural inclusiveness. The conference
particularly encourages critical studies in the following areas:

  Japanese language in globalization
  Japanese languages in multicultural society
  Cultural literacy and Japanese as second/foreign language
  Japanese language and colonialism
  Gender and Japanese language
  Diversity, variability, and standardization of Japanese language
  Information and Communications Technology and Japanese language
