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. Assistant Professor Hiromu Nagahara, MIT, will be our keynote speaker, delivering a talk on one of the most fascinating subjects: music. His presentation is titled: "Translating Music in Japanese History Courses."

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.
