The Department of East Asian Studies at Brown University is pleased to host the 28th Annual Conference of the Japanese Language Teachers Association of New England (JLTANE) on June 7, 2014. Professor Ian Condry, MIT, will be our keynote speaker, delivering a talk on one of the most sought after topics: Anime. We aim to bring together all who teach Japanese in colleges and high schools as well as those who are interested in the language and culture. The JLTANE Conference is a platform for sharing the ideas and experiences of teaching the language and culture to non-native speakers of Japanese at all levels and needs.
