Title: Implicating the Role of Japanese National Identification: National Vitality, Community Appeal, and Attitudes toward English Language Learning in Context
Authors: Rivers, Damian
Abstract: With a strong focus on the social-psychological processes associated with individual and collective identity formation and fabrication, and on the premise that English language learning within the Japanese context is heavily implicated into the realm of nationhood and national attachment, this context-specific presentation will share the findings of a project which sought to explore the relationships between four specific attitudinal facets of Japanese national identification (internationalism, patriotism, nationalism and commitment to national heritage), the perceived vitality of English speaking nations, the intercultural appeal of English speaking people, and attitudes toward learning English within a sample of 279 female freshmen students. Based primarily on theoretical principles set forth by the author, a process of structural equation modeling was undertaken in order to test a proposed model of the various interactions and relationships. A number of important relationships were identified and are discussed with a specific emphasis on the implications created by native-English speaker teacher roles and what they mean in terms of maintaining certain attitudinal facets of Japanese national identity among students.
