Subject: Groups and Gatherings

The holidays are the season for different kinds of get-togethers! Drinking meetings, year-end parties, Christmas, New Year, meeting up with family, friends, and our significant others etc. But sometimes we feel uncomfortable, lonely or sad during these holidays.
What are your feelings and worries about gatherings with your friends, acquaintances, clubs or circles, family or at your school, work place or community? This month's session of Fuwa Café will be a tea party where we chat about our different experiences or ideas about groups and gatherings.

We'll enjoy tea and coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:

"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me"
"I might be attracted to both men and women"
"I have no interest in romance"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man"

Are the violation of human rights that come with colonialism and slavery, war and fascism a thing of the "past"? We want to create a space to discuss problems that persist today, and the danger of repeating these issues from a gender and sexuality perspective.
We will analyze historical traumas that vary depending on the region and period, and "colonial responsibility" in contemporary movements in previous colonies.

CGS Reading Group
Autumn Term 2017
Thinking about and/or from Asexuality

Every term the Center for Gender Studies (CGS) at ICU hosts student-led reading groups in which we read together a book closely. Certain books may be difficult to read by ourselves, but when we read together it's better. We can ask each other when we don't understand, and we can continue enjoying our reading together!

"An asexual is someone who does not experience sexual attraction" (AVEN). In this reading group we will learn about asexuality while thinking about the politics of difference through a variety of materials, including websites and academic articles. We welcome anyone who is interested regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity!

Please look at the following URL site for details about the reading list: goo.gl/C6SK8Q

Coordinator: HANYU Yuki (Doctoral Candidate, University of Tokyo/Research Institute Assistant, CGS)

Hosting dates: Thursdays at Lunch Time (12:40-13:50)
Starting from September 21st (Thursday)
Location: Center for Gender Studies, International Christian University ERB-1- 301
