Hey, now that there's no chance of compromising my rl identity (because I did it myself) I can post this link freely.

Here you can read or download my PhD thesis, "Animating Transcultural Communities: Animation Fandom in North America and East Asia from 1906-2010." The language and references are pretty academical, but I hope that anyone who likes animation and wants to know more about its history and current fandom might find it interesting. It's committee-approved and chock-full of animated goodness!

I'll post the abstract under a cut as well.

From cyberpunk to historical drama, this week's lazy pulling-from-my-reviews-file post is about the two Barefoot Gen movies put out by Madhouse in the 1980's.

But before I begin, a shout out to the School Girls and Mobile Suits conference hosted by the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I went last weekend, and it was amazing to talk to so many people who are passionate about watching, studying and creating anime and manga. Plus, I got to eat a funnel cake! I always wondered what a "funnel cake" was, and now I know. It's deliciousness with icing sugar on top. ^^

Now, on with the wartime drama. Yay?!
