I’ll be participating in two panels at Anime Expo 2013, which takes place July 4-7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. If you’re already going to the convention, I hope to see you there! If not, what are you waiting for?
The first panel is part of the Anime and Manga Studies Symposium, where I’ll be presenting and talking about an academic article I wrote entitled “Fullmetal Alchemist: A ‘Western’ Story Influenced by Japanese Sensibilities.” It will be at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, in Live Programming 4 / LACC 411 and will be one part of a two-part panel called “Borrowing and Changing: What and How Anime Takes from the West.” You can find out more under Academic Lectures on the AX website.
The second event is a 20-minute Sneak Preview of the indie film Broken Spirits, in which I play the part of v-logger Erin White. It will be at 12 noon on Sunday, July 7 Video 1 / LACC 403, followed by a Q&A.
Both events can also be found on the AX Event Schedule.
