in Media res

If you’re in the Philly-NJ-Delaware area, join me for a 3-week noncredit course I created just for the amazing Media Arts Council called Intro to Indian Cinema. It’s a fun and simple summer class in which I’ll screen and discuss an Indian film every week in the historic borough of Media, PA about 13 miles outside of Philly.

The class starts Monday, July 15 at 5:30pm.

Tuition: $160

See you there.

Zooming Into the Weekend With Fulbright And Drexel

I had such a blast today giving a Zoom presentation, along with Drexel’s Associate Director of Global Partnerships Young-Min Park, to Drexel University faculty and administrators about my Fulbright experiences, how I approached the application, and resources for them to begin their own Fulbright journeys. Great way to start the weekend!

Q&A at UPenn

We had a wonderful time yesterday at the University of Pennsylvania‘s Van Pelt Library event hosted by Assistant Director of the Center for Global Collections and South Asian Studies Librarian James (Jef) Pierce, PhD.

Abhijit Chowdhury and Jeffrey Stanley

Drexel University‘s Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Abhijit Chowdhury screened part 1 of his 4-part feature film he’s been editing here, The Strange Life of Dhrubo, with each vignette inspired by a different world-renowned Bengali painter. After the screening, I had a blast moderating a Q&A with Abhijit. What a great turnout!
