Join us on the 20th of April for the second seminar in the UCLan ISAP Postgraduate-Led Seminar Series at the University of Central Lancashire, UK.
Asia is weird - or is it? Popular media often presents Japan as a modern country with robot hotels but also a weird one where people are obsessed with manga and anime. Recently, there has been a considerable growth in content of Thai and other Asian horror films on Netflix as well as a mediatic interest in North Korea's weird policies and practices. We are delighted to invite you to this event to see why these 'Asian oddities' exist and what they mean with a panel of scholars that will discuss them. During our discussion, we will also address perhaps the most important question - why is it that we think Asia is odd?
The following scholars will be joining us this time around:
The seminar will conclude with individual breakout rooms with the speakers and a Q&A session with the whole panel.
