The 27th SEATJ conference Organizing Committee @ Clemson University is pleased to announce a Call for Papers/Presentations for the 27th Annual Conference of the Southeastern Association of Teachers of Japanese. The conference will be held at Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina, on February 25th and 26th, 2012. The 27th SEATJ conference is open to pre-college, college level, and heritage Japanese language teachers.

The organizers welcome proposals for 20-minute papers with an additional 10 minutes for discussion which relate to Japanese language education including, but not limited to: literature, linguistics, second language acquisition, heritage language, and cultural studies.
