[2013-03-25 Block 7] Tapestries of apocalypes : from Angers to 'Nausicaa' and beyond

by Napier, Susan

Abstract

The First Mondays Event Series is a campus-wide forum that aims to engage all members of the CC community, including students, staff, administrators and faculty. The series creates opportunities for the whole community to gather, encouraging everyone to be part of the intellectual life of the college, and facilitating discourse among students, faculty, and staff, across courses, disciplines, and divisions. This First Mondays Event features Susan Napier of Tufts University, who began her academic career in Japanese literature, but has expanded her field of research to include the medium of Japanese animation. Two of her books include "Anime from Akira to Howl’s Moving Castle: Experiencing Japanese Animations" (2001) and "From Impressionism to Anime: Japan as Fantasy and Fan Cult in the Western Imagination" (2007). She is currently writing a book on the films and manga of Hayao Miyzaki, Japan’s greatest living animator and arguably the greatest animator in the world today. Also interested in many other areas besides Japan, Napier currently teaches The Cinema of Apocalypse and Fantasy in World Culture and hopes to develop a course on science fiction soon. This event was sponsored by Gaylord Endowment for Pacific Areas Studies Annual Lecture, National Endowment for the Humanities Professorship and Asian Student Union. This lecture was presented at Colorado College, Armstrong Hall, March 25, 2013.
