We will hold an international symposium between 19 December (Friday) and 21 December (Sunday) at the Minoh Campus, Osaka University. The common theme is: "Legacies of World War II, Part 2." http://sugita.us/programDec2014 We are looking for discussants for the sessions. Each session runs 1 hour (15 minutes for presentation and 45 minutes for discussion).
The editors of H-SAE wanted to take the opportunity of the World Cup to prompt some discussion regarding what this tournament means in the participating nations represented on this list. As of today, we've had a chance to see all teams in action. How are the top-ranked teams performing viz the expectations of their home supporters? What storylines nourish the fateful clashes that appear on the schedule?
