Center for American Studies

The Center for American Studies was founded in 1976 with a grant from the Fulbright Commission (Japan-U.S. Educational Commission). Fostering interdisciplinary programs in American Studies at Nanzan, the Center has a library of some 17,500 volumes providing information on American government, sociology, history, diplomacy, economics, and culture. It serves as a major source of such information for people in the central region of Japan. Its journal, the Nanzan Review of American Studies, is well known in its field.

The Center hosts the NASSS (Nagoya American Studies Summer Seminars, 2007-2011).

Center for European Studies

The Center for European Studies was established in 1991 to further mutual understanding between Japan and the countries of Europe.

The Center promotes research on contemporary European politics, economics, and society from a broad, interdisciplinary perspective. Its major concerns at the present time include the role of Europe in the formation of a new global security system, the movement for an even more strongly integrated market within the European Union, and the integration of eastern European countries within the new Europe.

Center for Asia-Pacific Studies

Integrating the former Center for Australian Studies and the recently established Center for Asian Studies, the Center for Asia-Pacific Studies was set up in April 2005 to meet a broad range of needs and to fulfill a number of key functions within the University. Mainly concerned with the regions of Asia and the Pacific, the Center provides a focal point for members of faculty whose research interests range from economic development, political change, modern history, and cultural exchange to literature and ethnic issues. The Center is expected to generate much interest at home and abroad through its symposia, publications, and scholarly exchanges.
