Digital Life (and death) at Temple University Japan, Tokyo
I will be participating in a panel of presentations under the rubric "Digital Dysfunction and Exclusion" as part of Temple University Japan's Digital Youth in East Asia conference this weekend (detailed info here).
My panel will be held this Sunday, June 22, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Tomohiro Kato's behavior in Akihabara exactly two weeks earlier has raised the urgency of such topics a notch or two.
An international roster of scholars, writers and their ilk will be on hand, and I am honored and humbled to be appearing alongside Duke University Professor Anne Allison, author of Millennial Monsters among other fine books.
The conference is free and open to the public. If you're in Tokyo, please join us.
