I am on a role with these events…if you happen to be in London and are interested in animation this might be for you.
Research Seminar –
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
their increasing popularity in the English speaking world and beyond.
Exploring both specific texts and their broader cultural context, and
examining both the audience 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
‘Such stuff as dreams are made on’: Dystopian vision of the future in

Dr Yoko Ono, Senior Lecturer, School of Arts and Humanities, Oxford
