Hey Klara, thanks for the info. But it wasn't actually my request, it was
for a Japanese TV reporter coming to town during NYComic Con. So I don't
know if he's actually looking for critical scholars to interview, or just
scenes of artists working on anime/manga in NYC for background/B-roll.

I actually meant for this to go to the Workers' list, but I suppose if
anyone has info on what this guy is seeking, feel free to post, and we can
PM him.
