Welcome to the online home of Amanda Kennell, PhD. I am an Assistant Teaching Professor of International Studies in the International Studies Program of North Carolina State University, where I research modern Japanese media and teach about international nations and issues such as globalization.  Previously, I taught at the University at Buffalo and served as a Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellow at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures in Norwich, England.  My work has appeared in The Journal of Popular Culture, Film Criticism, and the catalogue for Manga, a British Museum exhibit on which I consulted.  In addition to written publications, I curate exhibits for general audiences.  Currently, I am writing a book on Japanese adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland novels.  You can see a limited version of my CV by clicking on the tab above.  Information about a symposium that I organized, Adaptation, or How Media Relate in Japan, is accessible through the tab above.
