Introducing Japan to the West via Circus, a Talk by Japan "Pop-culture Ambassador" Fred Schodt

Saturday, Jun 15, 2013 3:00p to 5:00p

Frederik L. Schodt, winner of Japan's Order of the Rising Sun for his work popularizing manga and anime, will present the story of an American acrobat who gives many in the West their first glimpse of Japan when he takes his "Imperial Japanese Troupe" of acrobats and jugglers on a tour of North America and Europe in 1867. He argues that such early popular entertainments helped stir a curiosity about all things Japanese that eventually led to the boom in manga and anime.
