Katriel Page

Katriel Paige has been interested in the religious cultures of Japan since their undergraduate days in East Asian Studies and the days of the Shinto ML on Yahoo Groups. They first started doing Japanese cultural panels with an introduction to Japanese religious depictions in anime at Otakon 2004, and have shared their knowledge and resources since – even though through the years in fandom so much has changed, like how we access information, and the increasingly available English-language resources! Their particular interest is in media analysis and Japanese religious landscapes, but they’re happy to talk about topics ranging from intercultural communication to fan studies to tabletop games and stationery.

Katriel possesses Master’s degrees in Intercultural Communication (University of Surrey, UK) as well as in Disability Studies (CUNY SPS, USA).
