This presentation will explore the teaching of literature and cultural history (in English) in Japanese university classes, with a focus on preparing students to write their American Studies graduation theses in English. The presenter will discuss the role of literature texts in preparing students to do advanced level work. While the presentation will primarily appeal to university teachers, extensive reading, the lexical approach, and writing instruction will be addressed.

Hugh Nicoll is associate professor of English at Miyazaki Municipal University. He studied American Literature and cultural history at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
