I’m James and I’m working through a degree in Communications and Media, which is the reason I initially chose this subject. It’s was a core subject of mine and therefore I didn’t think too much of it when enrolling, but the more I delve into the world of Asian media and cultures and ethnography, the more I’m becoming genuinely interested in what it has to offer for me.
I am a huge music lover and musician, so I’m really looking forward to applying this toward Asian media cultures, potentially even breaking into the heavy music scene that is prominently growing in places like Japan with bands like Babymetal, Crossfaith and Maximum the Hormone. While I have limited knowledge of things like Asian cinema and Anime, I’m excited to broaden my understanding and maybe even develop a new interest in it. I guess only time will tell.
Here’s to a new subject, and whatever it may bring!
