INGS-Japanese Event

Towards greater inclusivity for gender and sexual diversity in Japanese language education and learning spaces

This event is to officially launch the International Network of Gender, Sexuality & Japanese Language Education (INGS-Japanese) with a talk by researchers in the field of critical pedagogy and language education. INGS-J aims to build greater inclusivity for gender and sexual diversity in Japanese language education and learning spaces. We aim to foster collaborative intersectionality and queer approaches to language pedagogy and classroom practices. We aim to collaborate widely, and internationally to share information and strategies for creating greater inclusivity in Japanese language education for all learners, educators and Japanese language users.

Please join us!

Ashley R. Moore (UBC) “Lift off! But in which direction? Some potential principles to guide the realisation of queer-inclusive Japanese language education”
