Japanese Language and Soft Power in Asia By Dr. Kayoko Hashimoto
English | PDF | 2018 | 208 Pages | ISBN : 9811050856 | 3.01 MB
This cutting edge collection considers how the Japanese language functions as a key element of Japanese soft power in Asia. Within Japanese culture itself, the promotion of language has been an area of ambivalence. This interdisciplinary book looks across the fields of language policy, language teaching, socio-linguistics, cultural studies and history to identify the links between Japan’s language policies and broader social, economic and political processes.
