Pop culture in Japan has transformed traditional Japanese storytelling by combining western ideas to create new stories for young people. Japanese comics (manga) and animation (anime) intended for audiences from toddlers to young adults, share a background of western ideas and philosophies with Japanese Shintoism and Buddhism to generate popular Western games such as Pokémon and Super Mario. Using manga and anime as a springboard, this seminar will facilitate a conversation to explore the fluidity of culture and ideas from different world views. We will also discuss what it is that makes some cultures more readily able to adapt to ideas from another culture while others strongly oppose such change.

This event is part of the SFU Shadbolt Graduate Liberal Studies Program Big Idea Seminar Series. These free seminar-style classes provide participants with an opportunity to revisit, rethink and reframe influential ideas of Western culture in light of current topics of social importance. Seminars are presented by the program's students, alumni and PhD candidates. Register online, in person, or by calling the Bob Prittie Metrotown Branch at 604-436-5400.
