    The present publication is the result of a collaborative project originally entitled “Japanese Transnational Cinema” whose aim was bringing together well established scholars as well as young researchers working on innovative approaches to Japanese cinema. The aim of this book is proposing new analytical methodologies and theoretical frameworks seeking to discuss the transnational complexities of film and media culture related to Japan, and challenge the old ‘national’ paradigm of by highlighting the limitations of studying film and media as a phenomenon confined to its national borders. The project was led in partnership between Birkbeck, University of London and Waseda University in collaboration with colleagues from other British and Japanese universities. Partial results of our research were published as an special issue (Centeno Martín and Morita, 2019) and presented in several international meetings, a two-day seminar held at Birkbeck in May 2019 whose second part took place few months later, a two-day symposium at Waseda, Tokyo, in July 2019. This European-Japanese exchange was possible thanks to the generous financial support from Waseda University, Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, Birkbeck School of Arts and Nagoya University which allowed Japanese scholars to attend the event in London and UK-based scholars to present in Tokyo.
