Event Description:
"When Candy met Asterix: Japanese animation's voyage to France and the shaping of global culture."

Professor Fabienne Darling Wolf, School of Media and Communication, Temple University
Wednesday, March 29, 4:15pm, Science Center 199

This presentation considers what the long history of Japanese animation and manga’s presence in France can tell us about the nature of contemporary globalized cultural forms and their local negotiation. Pointing to significant differences in the nature of the genre’s influence in the French and American contexts, it explores the dynamics at work in its academic exploration. It concludes by pointing to the dangers of positioning the United States as an assumed representative of an essentialized “West,” often opposed, in turn, to an equally essentialized “non-Western Other.”

Fabienne Darling-Wolf is Associate Professor in the Journalism Department and the Media and Communication doctoral program at Temple University’s School of Media and Communication. A global media scholar, she is the author of Imagining the Global: Transnational Media and Popular Culture Beyond East and West (U. of Michigan, 2015). Her work has also been published in leading journals, including Journalism, Journalism and Communication Monographs, Journalism Studies, Communication Theory, Critical Studies in Media Communication, and Visual Communication Quarterly.
