Talk I: Connecting Queer with Animation Guest: Akiko Shimizu Moderator: Honami Yano
What is queer? What is feminism? What does it mean to think about gender and sexuality?  Akiko Shimizu, who has been exploring the possibilities of "living" through the study of queer/feminism, will give us an introduction to queer/feminism, which will lead us to the way of seeing the world of animation works.

Sign language interpretation will be provided for this event.
