Prof. Sanjeev Chatterjee, Visiting Professor of Visual Communication and Senior Advisor to the Vice Chancellor – Young India Fellowship (YIF), has been awarded a Fulbright-Nehru scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.
“My idea is to try and build a bridge between the (Ashoka University) campus community and the surrounding rural/semi-urban communities through visual storytelling,” said Prof. Chatterjee.
He has received the Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Award to teach a Visual Communication course at YIF wherein “students will undertake a journey of discovery by making short documentaries about life, culture, and change in the communities they are assigned,” said Prof. Chatterjee. “Similarly, youth from the communities will be trained in mobile filmmaking and invited to make films about the Ashoka University campus community. The films will be screened publicly in different locations,” he added.
