Japanese Animation in a Global Era (Online)
In an era of ubiquitous streaming services, anime has found its way into nearly every corner of the globe. At this webinar, Mike Toole, editor at large at Anime News Network, and Thomas Lamarre, author of The Anime Ecology: A Genealogy of Television, Animation, and Game Media join us to examine this uniquely Japanese visual media. Exploring topics ranging from fan culture to marketing strategies in Japan vs. North America, our speakers will illuminate the historical framework behind the anime industry as well as its role within an increasingly complex and interconnected world. The fourth event in our multi-part Living Traditions webinar series this season.
