Amanda Kennell (University at Buffalo) argues technology's prominence in Kuwata Jiro's Batman (a.k.a. the Batmanga) reflects social debates within Japan regarding the distinctions between humanity, technology, and post-humanity. Aviya Amir (University of California, Riverside) demonstrates how the Hebrew-language webcomic Tzahal Sempa (IDF Sempai) paradoxically uses “sempai” as part of a demilitarized and homoromantic portrayal of social bonds within the Israeli army. Nicole Larrondo (The University of Texas at Austin) asks why “boys' love” manga has been a systematically stigmatized type of cultural production in Chile—even as most BL books are drawn by women for women—and how the genre expresses female sexuality.
