Translation of and into Vision in Comics/Animations and the Politics of Graphic Negotiation

Not only the written texts, but also visual images are translated. The media of more graphic nature are also “translated” to be understood in different linguistic/cultural communities. The panel, examining comics and animations, will explore the grammar of translating images and the politics of representation in such acts. Possible topics may include: the techniques and/or the politics in the adaptation of animations into those in other linguistic/cultural milieux (e.g. the case of the Indian version of The Star of the Giants), the use of images from other media in Japanese comics and anime (La Dame à la licorne, for instance, in Gundam UC) and its significance, the translation of images into texts, and/or vice versa, in comics (e.g. the graphic expression of onomatopoeia).
