Welcome, bienvenue and irasshaimase! My name is Sandra Annett, and I'm a newly-appointed professor in English and Film Studies, specializing in digital new media, at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada. This site is a carry-over from my informal, semi-public LiveJournal blog "Academic Anime," which I began as a graduate student to practice writing about animation, academia, and my experiences writing a PhD thesis on anime fan culture. I typically post thoughts on animated films and programs (new and old), reviews of academic studies of Japanese and world animation, and accounts of events I've been to in Canada, the US, and Japan.

The reason I stay with community-based sites like LJ and DreamWidth is that they allow for a kind of connection that the more stand-alone academic-type sites and blogs don't give. I like reading and writing comments, and I'm looking to start conversations with anyone who loves animation or studies pop culture of any kind, really. So feel welcome to comment or add me.

Despite the public forum, this is still a personal endeavor for me, and (standard disclaimer) none of the views expressed here are endorsed by the institutions which fund me or pay my salary. Now, on with the show!
