Thinking about Asias: A live playing of the game All Our Asias

GC 275 , 4:00 - 5:20

Sean Han Tani will lead a discussion during a live playthrough of his game All Our Asias. The main character, Yuito, a Japanese-American, enters a world constructed from his estranged father's memory. Along the way, Yuito learns of his father's activism history. He also begins to complicate his understanding of what it means to be Asian, as he moves beyond the notion that "Asia" is a single concept or uniform place of ancestral descent.
