Dr. Marx delivered a thought-provoking and spell-binding talk today, from 9.50 am to 12.50 pm, on Postmodernism, Media Studies and Subaltern Studies, to an ardent and enthusiastic audience, comprising students from III BA, I MA, II MA, M.Phil & PhD Scholars.
Excerpts from his talk:
To Fanon, silence is dishonesty. Although there are millions of angles and thousands of opinions available to get a perspective of an object or a person, we always prefer to go by the binary, wherein one is prioritised over the other. The first problem of any language is knowability. It is seemingly knowable, but in reality it is not knowable. What then, is real? Reality is relative. In Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, we have a clear case of different versions of truth given to the police by different people.
