This lecture examines contemporary anime in terms of the relations among subjectivity, technology, and the politics that inform and condition them. Focus is placed on a radical doubt of the reality of the self and how anime deploys not only its technical capabilities, but its limitations in order to instantiate in the spectator, crises analogous to those dramatized in the fiction, and crises that such technical revolutions like cyberspace foment.
