This two-day conference will involve scholars and educators who are
interested in the issue of manga studies in Japan and Southeast Asia. We
have also invited artists from Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, China and the
Philippines to exhibit their works and conduct an artist talk. This
conference aims to approach the theme from various viewpoints. The
objectives of the conference include: 1) To show the various research
topics and approaches in dealing with manga and manga-style works, and
promote research by scholars, particularly from young researchers and
students, 2) To provide a forum in English in order to accommodate the
audience with no Japanese-language proficiency as well as to discuss the
research agenda of manga with researchers in popular culture, 3) To make a
network among major institutions related to Japanese Studies and publishing
industries in the Philippines, particularly outside Metro Manila,
and 4) To consequently contribute to the propagation of popular culture
education in the Philippines. (http://ateneojspconference.blogspot.com/)
