In April I had the very great pleasure of speaking at the University of Maryland. My talk was entitled “From Nausicaä to Ashitaka: the development of the heroic ideal in the 20th-century works of Hayao Miyazaki”.

By kind permission of the University, and thanks to the magnificent work of their audio-visual wizards, the talk is available online and you can see and hear it by by following this link.
