[ONLINE EVENT] Anime Sway: How Japan Came to Dominate the Global Pop Culture Landscape
Thursday, September 17 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Since the introduction of anime to Western audiences in the 1990s, Japanese motifs and animation techniques have continuously influenced global pop culture. Anime has become a respected form of entertainment and elevated the animated storytelling genre to an art. Now, Japanese pop culture and characters are as recognizable worldwide as their counterparts from Disney and Warner Brothers.
Join JASDFW for a program addressing the introduction of anime into the Western market, the importance of anime for Japanese cultural diplomacy and soft power, the integration of Japanese history and folklore into contemporary pop culture, the use of Japanese style and sensibilities in pop culture outside of Japan, and the state of the industry given recent disruptions caused by COVID-19.
