Article on A Bit Off the Top

I am giving a talk next week on the latest chapter of my research on Japanese nerd subcultures. I returned from Japan last month, where I started shooting my new documentary film. More info on the film here.

For this occasion A Bit Off the Top online magazine made a very nice interview with me, please check it out the full interview here.

As a Millenial myself, I find Gina’s recent investigations into digital communities to be entirely relevant. Increasingly connected online, I sometimes feel alienated from my physical life. I wonder what that means for me as an individual; what community or communities I belong to; and whether I can refer to a specific place as home. Gina’s work is important because it explores the very anxieties and questions most of my generation faces.” -Gabriel Couture

Thanks for the coverage and the great questions!
