Persocoms, Giftias and Hybrid Children – manga and anime’s love affair with artificially created humans
From Tezuka’s Astroboy through to the Giftias in new anime series Plastic Memories, Japanese creative artists have loved to wrestle with the practical and ethical problems posed by creating artificial humans. In fact, even though the latest lifelike robots are much hyped in the press and on social media, anime and manga are way ahead! Learn more about some of the unusual ways mangaka and anime creators have explored this fascinating and disturbing topic.

The talk will take place in the Art Room some time in the afternoon – don’t miss it as Sarah is a fascinating speaker!
