Voices From the Margins of ELT in Japan

College & University Education
Sun, Nov 22, 12:50-13:15 JST

This short presentation will present original research that uses a variety of narrative-focused research methods, combined with the framework of intersectionality in order to capture the voices and experiences of female, non-Japanese teachers attempting to make their way as English teachers in Japan. By focusing on personal struggles as well as structural marginalization, the presentation aims to give unique insights into the teachers’ contextual situations as well as giving a voice to teachers seldom heard.
