Dexter L. Thomas, Jr. traces the effect that Yutsoko Chusonji's work had on the Hip-Hop scene in Japan, both as an "edutainment" writer and as the woman who personally bankrolled Japan's first ever hip-hop radio show. June M. Madeley (University of New Brunswick, Saint John) investigates the readership, viewing, and meaning-making practices of manga readers and anime viewers outside Japan, in particular in English translation. Jonathan Valdez (San Diego State University) examines activism from the Asian American community by focusing on comics in Secret Identities: The Asian American Superheroes Anthology and Shattered: The Asian American Comics Anthology, arguing that these anthologies seek to dethrone longstanding Orientalist stereotypes.
