AX 2013 ANIME AND MANGA STUDIES SYMPOSIUM
Anime and manga are among Japan’s most important contributions to global visual and popular culture. And, it is no surprise that professors at colleges and universities around the world are asking questions about anime and manga, and answering these questions in classes, books and articles.

The AX Anime and Manga Studies Symposium is a special track of academic talks on the history of anime and manga, the works of individual directors and creators, the ways they represent aspects of Japanese culture, how fans in different countries interact with Japanese culture, and other similar topics. It brings speakers from colleges and universities from around the U.S., Europe, and even Japan to Anime Expo, and gives AX attendees a unique opportunity to learn more about Japanese animation and comics and to find out about some of the newest trends in anime and manga studies.

You will meet professors and graduate students who teach and write about Japanese visual culture, get answers to your own questions about anime and manga, and learn how you too can begin on your path to becoming an anime scholar!

My presentation is part of the “What anime fans do, and Why, and How” section of talks The rise of the cosplay economy: Fan creativity for fun and profit Lawrence Brenner, Cornell University
