For their final meeting of the semester, A/P/A Reads watches excerpts of Princess Mononoke directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Dealing with themes of environmentalism, Shintoism, and industrialization, the animated movie is set in a fantastical version of medieval Japan where humans, animals, and gods live together harmoniously — but this harmony has recently begun to crumble.
Book club members will also have the chance to reflect on the year, discuss ideas for future A/P/A Reads meetings, and relax before finals begin. Sushi and sweet treats will be served.
Launched in Fall 2020, A/P/A Reads is a student-run book club for NYU students with an interest in A/P/A writing and literature. Members meet monthly to discuss selected works, and engage in meaningful dialogue together. The club is sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.
