Goddesses of Water & Sky

My thesis project, Goddesses of Water & Sky: Feminist Ideologies in the Worlds of Hayao Miyazaki is now available as an ebook on Amazon.com and the Barnes & Noble website.  The book examines Miyazaki’s feature films through the framework of feminist film theory.

Hayao Miyazaki is one of Japan’s premier directors of animation.  His films regularly break box office records in Japan and his 2001 release Spirited Away won the Oscar for best animated feature.  Some of his most notable works include My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Ponyo.

The ebook is currently available from both sites for one dollar.  A PDF version of the book is also available – free of charge – at the following link:

    Thank you so much for not only writing this, but for also offering it for free online. It’s the perfect fit for my paper on female empowerment in Japanese popular culture. I will likely buy a copy when I can afford it.
