East Asian Studies Program

In recent decades, Japan’s manga market has become an alternative stage for historical and political debate. While in the past, manga has typically dealt with Japan’s wartime traumas in an implicit and indirect manner, recently there have been a few conscious attempts to utilize the manga industry as a medium to convey political messages which are not represented in the mainstream media.

Dr. Nissim Otmazgin is the Chair of the Department of Asian Studies, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Associate Director of the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace.
