Oyama Class Discussion

Today Professor Oyama’s class invited Doshisha students over for a discussion.

The topics this time were “Masculine Words, Feminine Words” and “Gender Roles.” Are the words that we see in the textbook the same as the words Doshisha students actually use?

The students were surprised to hear that the Doshisha students referred to themselves with “uchi.”

Uchi wasn’t written in our textbook!!”

After they found out, the students asked many questions like “When did you start using uchi?,” “Can you use it with anyone?,” and “Who’s allowed to use uchi?”

It was a small group, but a very fun discussion! Thank you to all the students who participated.
