Syada Dastagir (Japanese)

The 'Construction' of South Asians in Japanese Anime.

Syada's research aims to dissect the representations of South Asians (particularly Indians) in Japanse visual culture through the medium of animation. As race is a social construct, it is important to link and understand these portrayals within the rapidly developing political and economic landscape between Japan and South Asia.
