Queer and Sexuality Studies
Department of Gender Studies, Graduate School of Humanities
Welcome to Chika's Queer Lab
Our current project is to investigate how body image is constructed and why people care about if the image is real. For this purpose, we analyze discourses from the perspectives of cultural studies, media studies, ethnography and social science.
