Encountering Alice in Japan is a two-day conference at the University of Southern California on Japanese adaptations of and interactions with the world of Alice in Wonderland. Carroll’s Alice novels are wildly popular in Japan, having been translated into Japanese more than 450 times and spawning numerous adaptations. The conference themes will include: film, art, manga and the reception of Alice in Japan; Lolita (Gothic Lolita) fashion and identity; intersections between video games and literature; and representation of girlhood in Japanese literature and popular culture. The conference will explore the influence of the figure of Alice, and more broadly of girls, in Japanese literary, cinematic, artistic, and performative cultures.
