Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to announce that the fifth “Japan in the World, the World in Japan: A Methodological Approach” International Symposium will be held at Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand), in collaboration with Osaka University’s Center for Japanese Language and Culture (Japan), on September 16& 17, 2019
The symposium focuses on the methodology of teaching Japanese studies (history, culture, literature, etc.) at tertiary level in a cosmopolitan way that aims to place knowledge in the context of internationally-oriented education, appropriate in this age of super-globalisation.

1)   pedagogically-based papers and panels on the instruction of content courses;
2)   presentations introducing novel syllabi, teaching methods and materials;
3)  demo lessons centered on content-based class activities.
Please submit a 250-word (400字程度) abstract, along with a 50-word (70字程度) presenter bio and contact information, by June 30, 2019, at
