Anime: A Contested and Globalized Culture

Publication Date



My video, "Anime: A Contested and Globalized Culture," was assigned by Professor Michael Soha who asked students to take an academic project, previously assigned by any UNH class, and transform it into a multimedia piece. I decided to convert my final paper from Mark Hungerford’s Intercultural Globalization course into a video essay on Japanese anime. In this piece, I explain the negotiated understanding of anime from American and Japanese perspectives. I could not have made nearly as compelling of an argument without the use of video. The subject matter of anime is a mostly visual form, therefore, I was able to directly show examples of what I am arguing. Video allows a more descriptive and entertaining format to visually and auditorily express ideas that writing alone cannot illustrate. Film and video is where my creativity can excel.
