Martin Roth, Hiroshi Yoshida and Martin Picard (dirs.), Japan’s Contemporary Media Culture between Local and Global: Content, Practice and Theory, Berlin, CrossAsia-eBooks, 2021
This anthology offers a wide range of research on contemporary media culture in Japan, situating popular media content and its associated practices and theories in the complex interplay between the local and the global. The chapters draw attention to several prominent phenomena, suggest new approaches to the study of media and media cultures, and emphasize the importance of positionality in this context. This volume documents the results of a series of doctoral workshops held in Kyoto and Leipzig between 2017 and 2019, and continues the discussions begun there.
