Member Achievement: Rochona Majumdar

Today we are highlighting COSAS Member Rochona Majumdar, Associate Professor in South Asian Languages and Civilizations and Cinema and Media Studies, on her newly published book, Art Cinema and India’s Forgotten Futures: Film and History in the Postcolony. Majumdar examines key works of Indian art cinema to demonstrate how film emerged as a mode of doing history and that, in so doing, it anticipated some of the most influential insights of postcolonial thought. Book can be purchased here.
