1. Chung, Ga Young. "International Graduate Students, International TAs, International “Diversity Workers”: the Multiple Positionalities of the Course Instructors" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 59th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Washington Hilton Hotel, Washington D.C., <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p989485_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The two TAs, Sophy and Ga Young, have occupied multiple positions in relation to the construction and delivery of the pre-course. First, as international graduate students doing PhD in Global Studies in Education, Sophy and Ga Young have both experienced the hopes and dreams, challenges and difficulties as most of the international students, linguistically, culturally, and academically. Second, as students in the transnational higher learning space, they have carried with them layers of transnational experiences that have shaped their visions of higher education and the ways they relate to the other international students in their classes. To be more specific, the fact that the course was initiated by Sophy and Nicole, constructed together by Nicole, Sophy, and Ga Young, reflected the embeddedness of the course in the experiences of international students and international education specialist. In addition, as the course moved from online sessions--when Nicole was the primary instructor--to on campus face-to-face discussion sessions, Sophy and Ga Young actually “became” the primary instructors for the discussion sessions. Their positionalities as international students, TAs, instructors, and peers of their students both enrich and complicate the construction and delivery of the class. In their presentation, Sophy and Ga Young will talk about how their multiple positionalities in relation to the course shaped their engagement with Nicole (as representative of the University) and the students, as well as their curriculum and pedagogy to engage the diverse students in questions such as the meaning of higher education and various diversity issues.

Abstract: The round table FD14 is sponsored by the Japan Association of International Relations, which is in fact called “Nihon Kokusai Seiji Gakkai” in Japanese. If this name is translated literally into English, it should be called the Japan Association of International Politics. This might not be surprising at all in the United States. However, in Japan, “International Politics” and “International Relations” are not necessarily interchangeable. “International Relations” has a more comprehensive meaning, containing “International Politics” as a branch among others such as “International Law” and “International Economics.” Though distinguishing the state of International Studies in Japan from that in the United States, this historical conditioned divergence has not been well explicated in English. The whole body of International Studies prior to the Second World War has been grasped as “an amalgamation of Law, History, and Economics in the international arena” to borrow from Professor Inoguchi (who was supposed to attend this round table, but actually could not). The various strands of International Studies, including those leading into International Politics and International Relations, are all conflated into this all-inclusive “amalgamation.” Therefore, in this paper, I will resolve this “amalgamation” into its originally individual strands as observed in the form of university subjects. Particularly, I will look into the curriculums of the University of Tokyo and Waseda Universities. The genealogical distinctiveness of International Politics and International Relations will appear in the process.

Abstract: An increasing trend in international studies education is the ever-growing numbers of non-western students studying using English as the language of instruction. Part of this increase is accounted for by the growing number of students studying abroad for varying lengths of time in countries where English is the primary language of instruction. A second factor is the increasing number of institutions in non-western countries offering programs of study using English as the language of instruction, even when a different language is primarily spoken in the institution's host country. This can present a challenge to many western instructors both home and abroad, who are charged with covering sophisticated course content for students with a different cultural background and a more limited vocabulary than the students they are accustomed to teaching. This presentation focuses on the use of techniques such as scaffolding, multimedia usage, peer learning, and active learning strategies that enhance student retention and comprehension; as well as help close any comprehension gaps between non-western students and their more-fluent classmates. These techniques have been proven effective for instructors of western students of international studies and they are doubly effective in supporting the needs of non-western students. This presentation will draw on one professor's experience teaching at a Japanese university in three innovative programs that offer course content in international political economy using English as the language of instruction.

Abstract: Policy-making in the realm of information policy increasingly involves influence from non-state actors and foreign state actors. This paper presents some dynamics for understanding the sources of changes in information policy, particularly to understand the trans-national nature of these policies. These international policy dynamics include policy laundering, modeling, and forum-shifting. Upon describing these dynamics, this article contends that international relations, inter-governmental organizations, and the ability of civil society to participate at the international level will play increasing roles in national policy discourses.
