Thanks to Mike for mentioning the issue. As I announced earlier in the 
year, there was a major symposium at the Nichi-Futsu Kaikan at the end of 
March on the topic of war and media. Almost all of the papers presented 
there, plus a few more, have been published, often in expanded form, in 
Japanese in Gengai Shiso. My article on wartime Japanese cinema and the 
problem of Asian spectators is included. A list of the full contents is 
available at:
