*Mediatised images of Japan in Europe: *

*Through the media kaleidoscope*


*Call for Publication*

Mutual Images Journal (MIJ) welcomes scholars at all stages of their careers to submit an article on the theme “mediatised images of Japan in Europe: Through the media kaleidoscope”, for its 6th issue that will be published in Spring 2019.

Europe and Japan are geographically far removed from one another. However, and increasingly, Japan is also present in a variety of public venues and forms traveling on multiple distribution platforms: print, television, and online media. Inevitably, all these sources provide polyvalent images of Japan as traditional and modern, familiar and alien. The variety and sometimes conflicting nature of these images can raise questions about their accuracy and how representative of Japan they are. Japan is perceived through the kaleidoscope of the media, as a fragmented and scattered succession of images, forming an ever-changing vision. While air travel has become accessible for the masses, Japan remains distant for many Europeans, and thus their main or only sources of knowledge are those that are available to them in their home country or on the Internet.

Papers for this publication can fall into, but are not limited to, the following categories:

·Japan in the European media, in the past and currently

·The press: newspapers, weekly and monthly magazines, internet magazines and portals

·Television: variety shows, documentaries released in European TV stations

·Travelogues and carnets de voyage

·European/American cinema and TV shows

·Images of Japan as depicted in Japanese manga and animation (anime, feature films, auteur short animations) as well as Japanese live-action films and TV series released in European countries

·European/American novels, comics, cinema and TV shows

·Accuracy of media portrayals of Japan

·‘Contradictions’ and ‘paradoxes’ about Japan in European and Japanese media

·‘Japan’ as a constructed image in/by the media

·Western stereotyping of Japan in the media

Please send your paper, along with your details (name, position and institution/affiliation), a 300-word abstract and up to 5 keywords, to: *(mutualimages /at/ <mailto:(mutualimages /at/>*

The deadline for submissions is *10^th January 2019*.
