Study or Entertainment? Why Not Both: Studying Japanese Animation as Cultural Text

讀. 毒. 樂:日本動漫文化的文本研究

Date: 24 Sep 2015 (Thu)

Time: 16:30-18:30

Venue: D1-LP-06

 

Consumption of popular culture is often associated with corporal desire, it is therefore seldom an object of serious consideration. The speaker of this talk would break the common misunderstanding and general perception of Japanese anime as intoxicating, to discuss its meaning as cultural texts in relation to national history and social changes. He will also raise issues in concern with anime consumers.

普及文化消費總是令人聯想到膚淺的慾望‚難登大雅之堂。講者會跳出「睇得多會壞腦」的家長思維‚探討日本動漫作為文本‚在歷史及社會下的研究意義‚以及身為消費者或將面對的問題。
