Recent social and political issues are impacting communication on a global scale and in turn shaping policy in local education. As an authority on the English language, OUP influences how language reflects the times through publications such as the Oxford English Dictionary and the Word of the Year. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of OUP Japan, we are pleased to present the 5th annual Oxford Day, in partnership with Keio University's Global Research Institute. Keio University is a leading institution in Japan committed to contributing to global society and learning through interdisciplinary approaches. Oxford Day will bring together local and international speakers to discuss the influence language has on social, political, legal and educational issues. Speakers include:

  • Plenary Speaker Philip N. Howard (Statutory Professor of Internet Studies at the Oxford Internet Institute and Senior Fellow of Balliol College at the University of Oxford)
  • Peter Gilliver (Associate Editor, Oxford English Dictionary, Author of The Making of the Oxford English Dictionary)
