8 Ways to Analyze Anime

Time & Location

November 16, 12 PM
Javits Center, Panel Room 1E02 (New York, NY)


In many colleges and universities, anime has become a central part of Japanese Studies classes. But what can a professor tell you about anime that you don’t already know? This talk will examine approaches academic critics use to analyze anime and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each method. Dr. Christopher Bolton (Professor of Comparative and Japanese Literature at Williams College) is a leading anime studies scholar in the U.S., as well as a former Japan Foundation Doctoral Fellow (1995) with a recently published book titled Interpreting Anime (2018).

This panel is presented as part of Anime NYC by The Japan Foundation, New York.
