English for Specific Purposes (ESP) in Japan

A conference on 'English for Specific Purposes' (ESP) in Japan: "What it has been and what it can be?" will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2006 in Kyoto. Topics to be covered include; the rationale for ESP (participation in the social construction of knowledge), concepts underlying its current internationally accepted approach (discourse community, genre analysis, needs analysis, task), and useful ideas from other fields, including second language classroom research, critical discourse analysis and corpus linguistics. The presenter Judy Noguchi of the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences Mukogawa Women's University, holds a M.Ed. (TESL), Ph.D. (applied linguistics) and specializes in teaching and research on English for specific purposes, particularly in science and engineering fields.
