In keeping with these developments this seminar aims to expand students’ knowledge of the latest research from around the world. First, the students study presentations given by experts from the TED Talks website, which are a global set of conferences, that provide them with a wide range of issues. They have discussions about various kinds of topics, such as the environment, education, and personal development. From these topics, students nd their own areas of interest and deepen their knowledge through individual research projects. These experiences will be useful for building their own theory and preparing for their graduation thesis.■ The Seminar Digest One student gave a presentation on Japanese hospitality called “Omotenashi” in a group setting. “Omotenashi is the Japanese way of treating a guest. It blends a welcoming spirit with warmth, understanding and above all, respect”. He explained the denition of the Japanese word “Omotenashi” and its history, then talked about some examples of Japanese style hospitality. After his presentation, the students shared their ideas with each other. Many of them approved of this unique hospitality, but one student said, “ In my opinion, Omotenashi is bad for the Japanese.” When the other students asked the reason why, he answered, “Japanese customers expect to receive the Omotenashi treatment anytime”. “Why is it not good?” Professor Sian asked. His response was, “Omotenashi could make the Japanese mind lazy. They think everything is for them”. “ I get it. Japanese hospitality impresses people around the world. On the other hand, it could make Japanese customers lazy and arrogant. That’s an interesting perspective,” Professor Sian commented. Then they continued to talk about the pros and cons of Omotenashi.■ 「ことば、ココロ、文化」■ コーパス言語学入門■ American Culture■ American Culture and Society: Gender, Race, Disney Animations, Education, Pop Culture, and Social Stratication■ Applied Linguistics (応用言語学)■ Cultural or Historical Background of the English Language■ Current Issues■ Dierences in Communication Strategies between Men and Women■ First Language Acquisition(第一言語習得)■ Second Language Acquisition(第二言語習得)■ Japan Seen from the Outside■ Language in SocietyOmotenashi; Japanese HospitalityFaculty of International CommunicationDepartment of English StudiesSian Davies Edwards083
