King's College London Japan's Manga and Anime Industries seminar

Date: 2008 May 1st Thursday [17:14] | Posted By: Joe

Readers who can get into London on Friday 16th of May 2008 will want to get to King's College London, from 1pm to 6pm to attend a seminar on Japanese comic book and animation industries.

The line up of speakers looks good, but Yoko Ono is not THAT Yoko Ono. It'll be interesting if they mention the difference between manga and manga style artwork in the talks too.

To go to the talk you will need to register via e-mail.

Japan's Manga and Anime Industries: Creativity and the Global Marketplace

Friday 16 May 2008, 1 6pm
Room K2.31, Strand Building, Strand Campus, King's College London

This research seminar will investigate the Japanese comic book and animation industries, identifying and analysing the forces behind the increasing popularity of manga and anime in the English speaking world and beyond. Exploring specific texts and their broader cultural context, and examining both the audiences for and the business of manga and amine, the seminar will attempt to discover the complex cultural and commercial logic of these industries, at once manifestly country-specific and globally successful.

Five papers will be presented:

'Anime: The Anti-Cartoon?'
Andrew Osmond, freelance journalist and author of the upcoming book BFI Film Classics: Spirited Away

'Advertising anime: Global-local advertising and the Tokyo International Anime Fair'
Dr Rayna Denison, Lecturer, Film and Television Studies, University of East Anglia

'"Such stuff as dreams are made on": Dystopian vision of the future in Japanese manga and anime'
Yoko Ono, Senior Lecturer, School of Arts and Humanities, Oxford Brookes University

'Manga in the UK: Can manga reinvent Shakespeare?'
Emma Hayley, Director, SelfMadeHero, Metro Media Ltd.

'Between fan culture and copyright infringement: Manga scalation'
Dr Hye-Kyung Lee, Lecturer, Centre for Cultural, Media and Creative Industries Research, King's College London

We would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by email to cci@kcl.ac.uk. The seminar venue is located on the first floor of the King's Building, Strand Campus, King's College London. For further details and a map please see www.kcl.ac.uk/about/campuses/strand.html. Please ask at reception for directions. For further information please contact Dr Hye-Kyung Lee or Silvio Pezzana.

The seminar is organised in partnership with the Creative Industries Observatory.
