Gavin Furukawa received his PhD in Second Language Studies from the University of Hawai?i at M?noa and currently works for the University of Tokyo as the coordinator for their English spoken fluency program and as an instructor for both science and humanities writing. His research focuses primarily on discourse analytic approaches to identity construction, particularly with data drawn from mass media. Previous research projects that Gavin has worked on include the commodification of English in Japan, language stylization in mass media, pragmatics in teaching, using student ethnography for critical language awareness, and the teaching of less commonly recognized languages through social media. He is currently working on a project examining the connections between gender, language, and media in Japan.
