Join Jennifer Fu, Roland Kelts, Mikhail Koulikov, Alex Leavitt, and Yours Truly (Casey Brienza ^_^ ) at next week New York Comic Con/New York Anime Festival for the "Anime in Academia" panel where we will discuss *drumrolls* anime (and manga) in academia!
Come learn about how anime and manga have entered the realm of academia! This panel features professionals that have researched, taught, and published about anime and manga in English and Japanese. We'll discuss resources for you to read and watch, analyze developments in the anime and manga industries, and explain how the global spread of Japanese pop culture impacts how we understand our favorite books, TV series, and films.
Date: Friday, October 8; Time: 4:45 pm-5:45 pm; Location: Room 1E12
