Ayanni C. H. Cooper (University of Florida) addresses discrepancies between the anime and manga versions of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind by focusing on the manga of Nausicaä and positioning the text as climate fiction, using Miyazaki's "ecophilosophy" and his Shinto-esque leanings as a lens. Golnar Nabizadeh (University of Dundee) looks at Henry Yoshitaka Kiyama's 1927 comic The Four Immigrants Manga: A Japanese Experience in San Francisco, which demonstrates the power of comics to capture and convey the complexity of migrant memories as it portrays the (mis)adventures of four Japanese Issei in San Francisco. Shirin E. Edwin (New York University Shanghai) argues that Al-Mutawa's The 99, hailed in North America and Europe as a timely response to the stereotypes of Islam, inspired in the Arab world responses ranging from fatwas to accusations of commercialism; it has in fact provincialized and not globalized Islam.
