Third Thursday Lecture: Time Travel in Japanese Manga: From Prehistory to the Distant Future

This lecture traces the development of time travel in Japanese manga, comparing it with the same theme in Western films. Time travel stories of the 1960s were about how time could be “controlled” or “conquered” by technology (e.g. Tezuka Osamu’s Phoenix). More recent time travel manga are about loss of control over time (JIN, Zipang). Current examples tackle the psychological crises causes by this lack of control.

Admission is free and all are welcome. Booking essential.
