On May 12, 1963, Bob Dylan left the set of the Ed Sullivan Show, incensed the producers rejected his decision to “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues.” This non-circulation of his image through television provided valuable publicity and Dylan would boast of “the song they didn’t let me play on TV.” This incident stands at the beginning of an ambivalent and complicated relationship between Dylan’s persona, as expressed through his words and music, and its dissemination through screen media.
Born in 1934 in the village of Beauchamp, near Pontoise (France), Claude Pélieu was an influential figure in a number of contemporary transatlantic artistic and literary scenes from the 1960s until his death in 2002, yet he remains relatively unknown and absent from historical narratives of the period. In the 1950s, he began drawing and experimenting with collage, and later studied painting in Fernand Leger’s atelier. He published his first poems in 1956 in the magazine Rendez-vous avec le sol, followed by further texts in 1959 in Henri Chopin’s Cinquième saison.

“Pedagogy in the 2020s: Approaches to Student Engagement, Thought Provocation, and Fostering Socially Engaged Thinkers in a New Decade”
Much like cinema worldwide, Bengali language cinema has evolved through periods of artistic highs and scarred by moments of decay and decapitation. From the euphoria of the cinematic masterclass brought to life by Satyajit Ray, showcased in the Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali , Aparajito  and Apur Sansar ) to the intensely political canvas of Mrinal Sen’s Padatik (1973) and Ek Din Pratidin (1979) the visuality of entire spectrum of Bengal’s social classes – bhadralok to the unseen refugees of Partition – emerge as moments of intense visual engagement.
