かつては白人男性を中心とするエリート養成の活動とも考えられた教育ディベート(競技ディベート)は近年、参加者や議論のスタイルの多様性を図るかということが問題となってきました。また、都市部の貧困層の学校においてディベートによって学力格差を解消しようというUrban Debate Leagueに代表される活動も注目されています。日米交歓ディベートで来日中のカリフォルニア州立大学ケッパート博士に最新事情を伺い、参加者でディベート教育事情についてに議論します。

Dr. John M. Kephart III, Associate Professor of Communication Studies and Director of Forensics at California State University, Northridge, will talk about recent trends in educational debating activities in the U.S. in relation to an issue of accommodating diversities and empowering academically less privileged students in traditionally elitist activities of competitive debating. The talk will be followed by informal discussion among participants of graduate students and faculty members.
