戦後マンガの経験史 : 経験の重層性と問い直し The History of Experience through Manga in Japan after WWII from 1945 : Plurality of Experience and Re-interpretation
In the contemporary Japanese society, Manga has a long history and is one of the media that is common and prevalent in everyday life. In this thesis we will analyze the experience through Manga of two men's life stories, and we will reveal the diachronic relationship between Manga and the Audience, and the meaning of the actual reading of Manga. As a result, we could observe the following three key facts. First of all, in addition to the experience of reading the text of Manga, the experience through Manga is multi-layered, including the individual, social or historical experience of the reader and the master narratives. Secondly, the meaning of experience through Manga for most people is not fixed, but always has the possibility for re-interpretation depending on the experiences in their lives. Thirdly, the experience through Manga can be a resource for the readers in constructing their identities.
