Welcome


Casey Brienza is an American sociologist, writer, and educator. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Cambridge. Manga in America: Transnational Book Publishing and the Domestication of Japanese Comics (Bloomsbury 2016) is her first monograph.

For the past decade, Casey's research has followed two parallel streams. One is an investigation of the social organization and transnational influence of the culture industries, using manga publishing in the United States as a case study. The other has related to the digital technologies of publishing and reading which have emerged at the beginning of the 21st century. Her peer-reviewed articles are published in journals such as Journal of Historical Sociology, International Journal of Cultural Policy, American Sociologist, Sociology Compass, Journal of Popular Culture, Publishing Research Quarterly, and Journal of Graphic Novels & Comics. She is editor of Global Manga: "Japanese" Comics without Japan? (Routledge 2015) and co-editor of Cultures of Comics Work (Palgrave 2016) and The "M" in CITAMS@30: Media Sociology (Emerald 2018).

One of the most well-known manga experts in the United States, Casey has been interviewed in this context by media outlets such as the BBC, PBS NewsHour, MTV, The Guardian, GQ, and The Washington Times. Previously, she worked as a freelance journalist, columnist, and critic and published over a thousand professional writings with Anime Insider, Otaku USA, Protoculture Addicts, Anime News Network, Graphic Novel Reporter, among others.
