Events: “Secret” History of Yaoi and Yuri Panel at AnimeNEXT 2014

June 1st, 2014

Join me for The “Secret” History of Yaoi and Yuri panel at AnimeNEXT on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 5:30!

We’ll be looking at Heian literature and art to find the earliest mentions of what we would now call Yaoi or Yuri. We’ll trace these elements from magazines for girls of the early 20th century to the shoujo manga revolution of the 1970s to explain all the most popular tropes of BL and Yuri manga and anime.

As usual, there will be prizes for good questions, so I hope you’ll drop in and say hi!

  1. Is it possible that the panel will be recorded in some way for those of us who can’t make it to the convention?

    • It seems unlikely. My panels do not reproduce well, as I rarely write anything down. They are for those people who attended, not a class on the Internet. We’ll see, maybe I’ll publish the slides and text on Slideshare.
