Event Description

Full Description:
According to Clifford (2002), “mobility” has a definitively vital place in our incomplete modern world. Children comprise part of today’s large population movements of groups including migrants and refugees. These children have no choice but to cross borders of the environments in which they grow up, as well as cultural and language borders. International marriage is one example of “mobility” which has accelerated diversity among children in recent years. This consideration of mobility, pluricultural and plurilingual characteristics of people is the social challenge of the 21st century. Although the theme of this study is children with the above characteristics, it focuses on memories of children crossing borders rather than children themselves. This study explores how these memories can be used in academic research in countries such as Japan and Australia, as well as the significant role these memories play in Japanese studies in Australia.
