Manga, Anime and Scanlation

Hye-KyungLeeprofilephoto2009-07-20Congratulations to CMCI’s Dr Hye-Kyung Lee, who has just had an article published in the highly respected journal Media, Culture and Society.

“Between fan culture and copyright infringement: manga scanlation” is based on her successful presentation at last year’s CMCI symposium on anime and manga.

Hye-Kyung is already known for her work on cultural policy and creative industries, but this latest article also underlines her interest in the way that consumers (re)produce culture for non-commercial reasons, and so has been investigating fan translation of animation and TV drama as well as scanlation.

You can find her article in Media, Culture & Society 31(6), pp 1011-1022, and also online at
