Message from the GALE Coordinator

Welcome to the GALE Conference 2011
Exploring Gender and its Implications 

It has been a long haul from November 2010 when I first came up with the idea of another GALE Conference. During the JALT conference in Nagoya last November, we had many members asking when the next GALE event was going to be especially after our successful collaboration with IGALA at the IGALA6 conference in Tokyo last September. It was a great event with a strong GALE presence. 

With such an overwhelming interest in another GALE event, the only thing for it was to organize one. And organize one we did! There were a few bumps in the road along the way but the end justifies the means and so here we are. 

I would like to extend a very big thank you to Nancy Lee for making it possible for us to hold the conference at Kyoto University. There were lots of negotiations on our behalf for which we are most grateful. 

I would also like to express my gratitude to all the GALE exec for their support in making this conference come to fruition. It wouldn`t have happened without you. As I said at the beginning when I quoted an African proverb, 
If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far, go together.
 
We have certainly come far together and it has brought us to where we are today. Thank you all! 

Finally, I really do hope you all enjoy the conference and have a great day.
