How do you adjust a large course with 70 students to an online, remote format? How can we rescue UNC Summer in India, a study abroad program that has been running for more than 20 years? And what does the Parsi theater have to do with the origins of Bollywood Cinema? Professor Afroz Taj talks about his teaching and research as well as India’s response to COVID-19 in this interview.
Professor Taj also notes that Urdu Majlis (the Urdu Literary Forum)–which brings independent scholars and writers from the community together with faculty and students for a monthly meeting–will reconvene via Zoom starting Saturday (4/18) at 8:30 PM, and he can be contacted for further details.
