I am currently planning a Japanese pop culture event at the University of Missouri – St. Louis on October 3rd, 2009, in conjunction with the Japanese department, the Center for International Studies, and the Japan America Society!

In the morning, we will have an academic conference covering topics and emerging research in contemporary Japanese culture, with a chance to network and engage other scholars.

In the afternoon, we are going to be screening an animated title from Japan, with a panel discussion afterward.

If you are interested in presenting or attending, please let me know.
