As more people move across borders in pursuit of a “Good Life,” Asia is becoming increasingly diverse or multicultural. I argue that political elites in non-socialist Northeast Asia and Mainland Southeast Asia refer to two conceptualizations of moral personhood derived mostly from Confucian and Theravada Buddhist ideas in dealing with an increasing ethnic plurality and determining on which types of newcomers make the best fit in their society.

In Japan, Osamu Tezuka is known as the “manga no kami-sama,” or the “God of Manga.” In a heavily illustrated talk, Frederik L. Schodt will focus on Tezuka’s Tetsuwan Atomu (known as “Astro Boy” in the United States). In doing so, he will also discuss Tezuka’s role in the development of Japan’s enormous modern manga and anime industries.
