Ball State University Educators Publish Book to Promote Japanese Education

Dr. Kazumi Matsumoto, Assistant Professor of Japanese at Ball State University, and her colleagues within the Department of Modern Languages and Classics have published the book, Embracing the New Phase in Japanese Education in the United States. After the cancellation of the annual conference of Central Association of Teachers of Japanese (CATJ) in 2011, Dr. Matsumoto and her colleagues were able to resume the event in 2012.

 With additional funding received from the National Endowment for the Humanities through Indiana Humanities and the Northeast Asia Council (NEAC) of the Association of Asian Studies, they were able to host the 23rd CATJ Conference in 2012 with the theme of "Embracing the New Phase in Japanese Education in the United States," which spurred the creation of the likewise titled book.

The book presents a collective volume of conference proposals in hopes of providing valuable information to Japanese educators and educational agencies around the nation.
