Description:

Anime such as Akira, Princess Mononoke, X/1999, and Neon Genesis Evangelion
have painstakingly detailed worlds devastated by war, disease, technology
and the fall of civilization. Why has the world of anime embraced such a
macabre event? This lecture by JR PEPPER* will examine the phenomenon of
the post-apocalyptic Earth in anime as well as explore the current trends.

*JR PEPPER is a photographer, archivist and full-time geek. Her writing can
be found on Pink Ray Gun.com and she has given panels at New York Comic
Con, New York Anime Fest, Salon Con, Big Apple Anime Fest and Tokyo in
Tulsa.

OBSERVATORY is located at 543 Union Street (corner of Nevins Street) in the
Gowanus section of Park Slope, Brooklyn. Entrance is on Nevins Street, at
the end of an alley to the right of the building -- look for the sign that
says "Proteus Gowanus". By subway, take the R train to the Union Street
station and walk two blocks west; also accessible by F or G train (details
at Directions page on Observatory site).

Hope to see many of you there!
