Literature in Language Teaching

LiLT SIG members engage with literature through film, creative writing, poetry, the short story, classic literature and world literature, as well as literature in translation. We welcome interest from those working with cultural studies, politics through literature, language learning, and applications of literary texts in different contexts. We are always interested in volunteers to help out with things such as events planning, reading and proofing for our journal, and helping the SIG grow. If you are thinking about getting involved we welcome you to contact us!

Thank you to everyone involved in the JALT forum at Tsukuba, and to everyone who helped the weekend be an excellent opportunity for networking. Upcoming events this year include PanSIG2015 in Kobe, which links together the ideas of storytelling and happiness. We welcome suggestions on possible lit-themed events for future conferences also.
