Imagined Communities and Educational Possibilities by Yasuko Kanno

Book Description

Imagined Communities and Educational Possibilities focuses on three main themes: imaged communities expand the range of possible selves, technological advances in the last two decades have had a significant impact on what is possible to imagine, and imagination at even the most personal level is related to social ideologies and hegemonies. The diverse studies in this issue demonstrate convincingly that learners and teachers are capable of imagining the world as different from prevailing realities. Moreover, time and energy can be invested to strive for the realization of alternative visions of the future. Research in this special issue suggests that investment in such imagined communities offers intriguing possibilities for social and educational change.

Language and Education in Japan by Yasuko Kanno Language and Education in Japan, Hardback (January 2008)

The first critical ethnography of bilingual education in Japan. Based on fieldwork at five different schools, this examines the role of schools in the unequal distribution of bilingualism as cultural capital. It argues that schooling gives children unequal access to bilingualism thus socializing them into different futures.

An examination of the changing linguistic and cultural identities of bilingual students through the narratives of four Japanese returnees as they spent their adolescent years in North America and then returned to Japan to attend university. It analyses how their identities were shaped over time.
