Seeking presenters and / or a discussant for a panel on East Asian visual media for the 2018 ASCJ conference (International Christian University, Tokyo, June 30-July 1, proposal deadline Oct. 15). Our current focus is on mockumentary / found footage media, particularly in the realm of horror films and horror media ("true" ghost stories, internet legends like the "red room," found footage horror films and TV shows, depictions of real places and events in horror media). We welcome papers on (horror or non-horror) film, television, and games, especially papers that take an inter- / transnational approach to East Asian media, either by focusing on other regions or by extending the scope of their analysis beyond national boundaries altogether.

Please send proposed papel titles and a 250-word abstract to Lindsay Nelson at lindsayrebeccanelson@gmail.com.
