CIRCL Japan is a Japanese branch of CIRCL (The Graduate Centre for International Research in Childhood: Literature, Culture, Media). It was formed in summer 2005 by a group of Reading University graduates who studied on the MA in Children’s Literature. We aim to promote children’s literature criticism and cultural studies in Japan and welcome anyone who is interested in research in childhood.

As a study group, we meet regularly in Tokyo to have a discussion of text, which can be literary, critical, or theoretical.
