Mechademia Series, volume 6

Manga and anime fans can no longer be considered passive consumers of popular culture. They are users, in whose hands cultural commodities can provide instant gratification but also need to be understood as creative spaces that can be inhabited, modified, and enhanced. User Enhanced, the sixth volume of the Mechademia series, examines the implications of this transformation from consumer to creator.

Frenchy Lunning is professor of liberal arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
