I’ve been remiss and am finally digging in and clearing a back log of items to post to the Yuricon site. First up – new Essays for the Yuri Essays Page:
The Evolution of “Recognition/Assertion of a Lesbian Identity” vs “Akogare” in Manga – by Katherin Hanson
The Impact Of Globalization On Yuri And Fan Activism – by Yaritza Hernandez
These are both fantastic essays – please read them when you have a moment. As always, if you have any Yuri scholarship you’d like to share with us, please contact us at anilesbocon at hotmail dot com
Let me also take this opportunity to remind you all that the What Yuri Means To Me Project is always open to anyone who wants to share their personal story of discovering and enjoying Yuri! This project is our “oral history” (only we’re capturing it in writing right from the start) so please feel free to write your story up and send it to us. We look forward to hearing from you!
