Esther Stockwell Visiting Academic

24 April to 30 September 2023

Esther Stockwell is a Professor at Hosei University’s Faculty of Sustainability Studies in Tokyo. She has rich international experience in education and research. She has educated and published in multiculturalism, intercultural communication, and intercultural education using technology. Her recent study is about promoting multiculturalism (cultural diversity and equitable participation) and developing an intercultural communication education program, especially in a relatively homogeneous cultural environment. She has been awarded a grant from the Japanese government to investigate how deep-rooted Japanese and Korean ethnocultural identities, distinctively characterised nationalism, and cultural traits affected their young generation’s attitudes towards immigrants and multiculturalism. She will extend her research into the diversity management, inclusion, and integration of immigrants.
