Lecture and workshop: Manga in Japanese Culture

The lecture will introduce the listeners to the basics of Manga that form its unique nature as a visual arts phenomenon and differentiate it from European and American comic books. Using a number of contemporary Manga works as examples, participants will learn the specific features of its style, the existing canons of representation, scenarios, and dialogues. Special attention will be paid to the depiction of emotions in Manga drawings which is radically different from that of the Western tradition.

During the workshop, the educators will demonstrate the main ways of representing emotions in Manga, share some secret details of Manga drawing techniques, and offer practical exercises for creating one’s own comic strip characters.
