KANAZAWA Yu

Title
Assistant Professor
Research Fields, Keywords
Second Language Acquisition, Applied Linguistics, Vocabulary, Emotion
Research Outline
I have a Ph.D. degree in Language, Communication, and Culture and majored in Second Language Acquisition/Applied Linguistics. For my doctoral study, I have investigated the mental mechanism of vocabulary memory and the conditions of successful vocabulary learning via cognitive psychological methodology and theories. Currently, I am interested more in fundamental theoretical studies, from which pedagogical practices and epistemology are derived. For example, I am revisiting the relationship between emotion and cognition, which is a long-standing issue in philosophy and psychology, reviewing multidisciplinary perspectives such as micro-level emotion, fractal multileveledness of mental faculties, depth of processing, and emotional intelligence, and proposing new hypotheses and implications which aim to apply the understanding of subconscious, micro-developmental, and active-dynamic emotion to second language acquisition. I put importance on interdisciplinary academic endeavors and am especially intrigued by the early pragmatism (by C. S. Peirce, W. James, & J. Dewey), the biological philosophy (by H. Bergson), the process philosophy (by A. N. Whitehead), and their active, dynamic, organic, and élan-woven metaphysics and theories on human, development, and education. As for teaching, I have tried to pay mindful attention on multiple intelligences and diversity and to support each learner aided by multisensory ICTs, as is seen in Three-E-Imaginizer of my own invention. In terms of ELT in Japan, I am also leading a large-scale collaborative research project on processing, acquisition, and familiarity of English multiword sequences among Japanese EFL learners and its pedagogical application.
