Upcoming Yokohama JALT Meeting

The Yokohama JALT meeting for January, 2005 will be on the theme "Japanese University Students' Stereotypes of Chinese and Americans: A Quantitative Study." The presenters are Prof. Christopher J. Long, Ms. Hisako Otsuka, and Mr. Naoki Ikeda (Sophia University Professor specializing in Sociolinguistics with Senior Project Students). The presenters will discuss findings from a study of Japanese stereotypes of foreigners. Two groups listened to the same voice in Japanese. One group believed the speaker was American, the other Chinese. Both groups rated the speaker on 30 items (e.g., intelligence, fluency). Differences in ratings given by both groups and implications for intercultural communication in Japan will be presented. The meeting will be held on Sunday, January 16th, 2:00pm - 4:30pm, at Ginou Bunka Kaikan (Skills & Culture Center) near JR Kannai & Yokohama subway Isezakichojamachi.
