Asian popular cultural has generated a vast array of manga, anime, games, and related merchandise, artifacts that have proliferated globally. The 12th annual SGMS Workshop and 2nd annual Mechademia conference focus on the characters, concepts, and ideas that have emerged from Asian popular culture, as well as the intertextual relations and intersections of these forms with other cultures and with other worlds.
Individuals are invited to submit proposals that focus on the intersections with and intertextual relations of Asian popular culture. Individual papers as well as panel proposals are welcome. Presenters are encouraged to investigate various lineages and artifacts in an effort to make explicit new
insights, new histories, and new objects of knowledge.
Dai Sato is writer of critically acclaimed television series and films such as Samurai Champloo (2004), Casshern (2004), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (2004), and Cowboy Bebop (1998).
