Location: COOR 120 & Zoom
Please join us at our Humanities week signature event on Wednesday, October 19th at 3:30 pm in COOR Hall 120 for an interactive discussion. Prior to the lectures by ASU professors on Anime, Manga, and Japanese Popular Culture, there will be quizzes, and raffels with prizes to win. Winners will receive one Kimono and one hand-held fan.
This panel is an interactive discussion of the global reception and history of two of Japan's most famous cultural exports: manga and anime. For the past half-century, manga and anime have played a central role in the representation of Japan on an international stage, and served as a crucial lens for rethinking issues of popular culture, gender, literary genre, and Japanese identity. This panel invites experts from the Japanese program at the School of International Letters and Cultures, and Art History in the School of Art to examine the history and significance of manga and anime from a variety of angles.
