Animation in Transcultural Contexts, the inaugural Media Journeys Symposium at UEA, will be held in the Julian Study Centre, Room 3.02, on 24 May 2018. We wish to welcome all to an event that will investigate the diverse paths travelled by animated texts. This symposium brings together debates about animation from across media studies in order to investigate the transnational and transcultural connections between the global animation industries.
This event includes a keynote address by Helen McCarthy on creating anime fandom here in the UK and the importance of transcultural texts, a book launch reception for PRINCESS MONONOKE: UNDERSTANDING STUDIO GHIBLI’S MONSTER PRINCESS (Bloomsbury, 2018) and an optional screening of PRINCESS MONONOKE at Cinema City, as well as an optional symposium dinner. Tickets for the PRINCESS MONONOKE screening are available at £5.00 for symposium attendees.
