Foreign Language 300 will be focusing around Transnational anime in the Spring of 2019! Transnational Anime explores the development of the commercial Japanese animated film and television industry in the 20th Century. The course focuses on the many transnational, transcultural, and trans-industrial exchanges that took place between animation studios, animators, and audiences in Japan and the United States from the prewar era to the turn of the century, with a particular emphasis on two periods of major industrial change: the 1950s-60s and 1990s.
Reach out to your advisor as soon as possible with questions!
