Migration can be seen as a type of transition, marking a journey from one position to another via movement. This journey may be voluntary or forced, affecting people and communities as they respond to massive events such as wartime, disease, climatic changes, and economic and political upheavals. At the same time, there is also the motivation of hope, of future shifts towards positive aspirations; of the potential for radical change from the present circumstances.

Parution : Ethnic Minorities, Media and Participation in Hong Kong. Creative and Tactical Belonging

Lisa Y. M. Leung, Ethnic Minorities, Media and Participation in Hong Kong. Creative and Tactical Belonging, Routledge, 2021. 

Second and third generation South and Southeast Asian minorities in Hong Kong, being marginalized from mainstream social and political affairs, have developed an ambivalent sense of belonging to their host society. Unlike their forefathers who first settled in Hong Kong under British colonial rule, these younger generations have spent their formative years in the territory. As such, they have increasingly engaged in the public and political realms of society, partly in response to the territory’s rapid political changes. Leung discusses and analyses the complex and diverse engagement of migrant and minority youths in Hong Kong – and their struggle for recognition, while desiring to ‘be-long’ to a place they call home. Some are joining the calls for democratic changes in the territory. In particular, she argues that much of this struggle can be seen in minorities’ involvement in creative sectors of society.

While it will be of especial interest to scholars with an interest in Hong Kong, this book presents a compelling case study for anyone interested in the dynamics of migrant and minority engagement in the creative sector as a strategy for engagement.

Lisa Y.M. Leung is Associate Professor in the Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong. She has researched and published extensively in the area of minority and migration studies, and is co-author of the book Understanding South Asian Minorities in Hong Kong (2014). She has also researched extensively into the role of social media in social movements, having published journal articles such as ‘Online radio listening as affective publics? (Closeted) participation in the post-Umbrella Movement everyday’ in Cultural Studies (2018), and ‘Free TV as Cultural Right: the case of HKTV Movement’ in Inter-Asia Cultural Studies (2015).

Colloque international “Bibliothérapies d’ailleurs : des Mille et une nuits au manga”

27-29 Janvier 2021, Université de Strasbourg

            L’idée que le livre soigne est aujourd’hui très populaire en Occident, où se multiplient les ateliers de « bibliothérapie » comme la production d’ouvrages à des fins d’amélioration de la santé psychologique ou physiologique des lecteurs. Cette dynamique marque un tournant dans la conception du rôle joué dans la littérature depuis 1950 : après des années placées, dans les œuvres littéraires comme les approches critiques, sous le signe de la réflexivité du texte et de sa clôture sur lui-même, ces nouvelles pratiques restituent à la littérature une dimension non seulement esthétique, mais aussi existentielle.

Transnational Fandoms

The CFP for Mechademia 12.1, Transnational Fandoms, is now available. The issue will explore the global consumption, creative (re)production, and widespread redistribution of East Asian popular culture.

The CFP will close on June 1, 2018. Questions and submissions may be directed to the Submissions Editor at submissions [at]

In tandem with the 2018 Mechademia conference in Minneapolis, this volume of the Second Arcjournal will focus on the theme of Transnational Fandoms. It will explore the global consumption, creative (re)production, and widespread redistribution of East Asian popular culture, including, but not limited to, fan cultures surrounding manga, anime, popular cinema, music, fashion, and gaming. Authors are invited to submit papers of 5000-7000 words by June 1, 2018.

Media fandoms arose in Japan and the United States contemporaneously, growing out of the proliferation of mass media in the twentieth century, particularly after the spread of the television in the 1950s and 1960s. As the work of scholars such as Marc Steinberg has made clear, the origins of what is known in Japan as the “media mix” and in the United States as “convergence” or “transmedia” (after the work of communications scholar Henry Jenkins) lay in the rise of Astro Boy and its associated merchandising in the 1960s. From the cross-cultural science fiction fandom scene of Worldcon, brought home to Japan in the 1970s, to the European obsession with Takemiya Keiko, Hagio Moto and the Izumi Salon in the same decade, fandom in the broadest sense has always been transnational. In the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, and with increasing simultaneity of access enabled by the rise of fandom cultures online since, transnational fandoms focused on East Asian media have proliferated globally. At the same time, the media mix model has increasingly conquered Hollywood, as is evident in the global success of the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” at the box office.

Transnational fan cultures have played an active role in these developments, and professional creators continue to evolve in their attempts to court and to corral fandom approval and fan production. Friction between these groups, and the slippages among them Continuer la lecture de Appel : Fans de culture pop asiatique
