Japanese Culture Constructed by Discourses: Implications for Applied Linguistics Research and ELT.
Kubota, Ryuko
TESOL Quarterly, v33 n1 p9-35 Spr 1999
Questions the cultural labels attached to Japanese culture in much of applied linguistics research. Maintains that such labels are constructed by a colonial discourse that views the "other" as being what the West is not. Proposes a pedagogy of critical literacy that supports cultural pluralism while recognizing the benefits of an acquisition of specific literacy practices for social change. (Author/VWL)
