Online Seminar: “Anime as Political Theory”
October 26, 2021 - 16:00-17:00
Can anime be approached as a mode of political theory? In the 96th Stockholm Seminar on Japan, Mari Nakamura examines how popular science fiction animation conceptualizes different aspects of emancipation – one of the key concepts in modern political theory.
The Japan seminar series is jointly organized by the European Institute of Japanese Studies at Stockholm School of Economics, the Asia Programme at The Swedish Institute of International Affairs, the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies at Stockholm University and the Swedish Defence University. It features monthly seminars on Japanese economy, politics and society.
