Whenever you are hungry and tired, good food can always cheer you up. What role does the school cafe and cafeteria play on our busy days, and what kinds of little secrets are hidden behind? OCA Chinese Department interviewed colleagues from the Sproutworks team who manage NYU Shanghai catering services. Through the following Q&A part, the supervisor Mary Kate will lead us to explore Cafe/Cafeteria, two interesting places on campus, and solve potential questions for you.
Welcome our international students! This semester, we can obviously feel that the cafe has become more lively due to the return of most international students. However, the process of many of them coming back to Shanghai was not smooth, or even very turbulent. We interviewed Kevin Zhao and Stephanie Anderson and let’s have a look at their journeys!
Since the reopening of the school’s fitness center and studio last month, many students have already returned to exercise. However, all of the students who go to the school fitness center and studio are required to wear masks all the time and follow a series of rules in response to COVID-19, which has aroused some discussions on campus.
While being one of the highly anticipated films after the reopening of theatres for COVID-19, Jiang ZiYa had killed the box office. However, many audiences expressed disappointment about its structure and confusion about its theme after watching this film. Actually, it includes thoughtful philosophical questions and an abstract discussion of The Trolley Problem. We try to subjectively analyze its inner conflict of having a huge theme, plain characters, and plot setting and how these conflicts become an unavoidable problematic narrative form. In the end, we still regard it as a pioneer of Chinese adult film animation.
