About CGS

The CGS stands for the Center for Gender Studies at International Christian University (ICU) in Tokyo. Established in April 2004, this center offers a new communication space to anyone who is interested in the issues of gender and sexuality.

The CGS has three major goals. First, we will break away from passive strategies that rely mainly on consuming information from the western world. Instead, we will work to actively collect and convey relevant information in Japan to the rest of the world. Second, we will work to build networks with and among people in Asia who are interested in women's/ men's/ gender studies. Third, we will support the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies of ICU, which has launched a new stage of gender studies by including the natural sciences.

Please keep in touch with us.

CGS Faculty List

The Books and Audio-visual Aids Lending Service
CGS has books and audio-visuals related to gender topics.

There are a wide variety of books. Books are recommended by CGS-affiliated faculty that range from introductory explanations of gender to academic pieces employing gender analysis as a key method of critique. Selected DVDs related to Gender Studies will be added as well.

We provide the Books and Audio-visual Aids Lending Service to make resources available for students, faculty, and staff at ICU. Those who would like to only read the books are welcomed as well.
