OCAD U mourns the passing of Dr. Ananda Shankar Chakrabarty

OCAD University is mourning the recent passing of Dr. Ananda Chakrabarty, an assistant professor who taught in OCAD U’s Faculty of Arts and Science. 

In a message to the community, President and Vice-Chancellor Ana Serrano extended the University’s sincere condolences to Dr. Chakrabarty’s family and friends, and to all those in the community who knew him, worked with him or studied in his classes. 

A virtual community gathering was held on Thursday, January 13, 2022 to remember Dr. Chakrabarty, share memories and be with each other at this very sad time.
 

Ananda Shankar Chakrabarty

Having grown up in India, Ananda moved to France as a young man to pursue his passion for jazz guitar. After becoming an accomplished musician, he leveraged his musical expertise and piercing intellect to gain entry to the Maîtrise in Musicology program at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris, even though he did not have an undergraduate degree. He remained at EHESS to complete a Diplôme d'Études Approfondies (MPhil) in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on Jazz and Contemporary Painting. 

Fluent in Bengali, Hindi, French and English, in the late 1990s he profited from his multilingualism to move to the University of New Mexico for an MA in Art History before decamping to Northwestern University in Chicago for his PhD, producing a dissertation that explored the philosophical implications of late 20th century French aesthetic responses to archaeology and prehistory. 

Upon graduation, he taught at the University of Utah briefly before being hired at OCAD in 2006. His research interests included post-1945 European visual culture in terms of 20th century French philosophy and literary criticism/theory; impact of Asian art and philosophy on post-1950 Western art; post-colonial studies; and interdisciplinary studies of 20th century improvisational music and visual arts.

His time in Paris—when he became a close associate of the painter Pierre Soulages—strengthened his interest in the artistic, musical and literary avant-gardes of the 20th century and became the foundation for multiple writing projects about Soulages (including contributions to the book Dialectical Conversions: Donald Kuspit's Art Criticism and the journal RACAR) and about the influence of Asian art and philosophy on Western art (the basis of an article in Third Text), as well as inspiring courses about south Asian art, classic modernism and the intersection between music and visual art.

His friends and family will greatly miss his precise and wide-ranging intelligence, generous spirit, crackling energy and mischievous sense of humour.

Please join us for the virtual book launch event for Curating Lively Objects: Exhibitions Beyond Disciplines, on October 28th, 5pm to 7pm EDT, hosted by OCAD University’s Faculty of Arts and Science and School of Graduate Studies, in partnership with Onsite Gallery.
 
Co-edited by Caroline Seck Langill and Lizzie Muller, Curating Lively Objects explores the role of things as catalysts in imagining futures beyond disciplines for museums and exhibitions. Contributing writers describe how their curatorial collaborations with diverse objects, from rocks to robots, generate new ways of organizing and sharing knowledge.
 
Bringing together leading artists and curators from Australia and Canada, Curating Lively Objects addresses object liveliness from a range of entwined perspectives, including new materialism, decolonial thinking, Indigenous epistemologies, environmentalism, feminist critique and digital aesthetics. Foregrounding practice-based curatorial scholarship, the book focuses on rigorous reflexive accounts of how curating is done. It contributes to global topics in curatorial research, including time and memory beyond and before disciplinarity; the relationship between human and non-human across different ontologies; and the interaction between Indigenous knowledge and disciplinary expertise in interpreting museum collections.
 
Caroline Langill and Lizzie Muller will be joined in conversation by Ryan Rice, Lisa Myers, Randy Lee Cutler, Tess Allas, Lucas Ihlein, and Sarah Cook.

The Arts and Science digital publication editorial Committee- composed of Ross Bullen, Ian Keteku, Michelle Miller, Kathy Kiloh, Maria Belén Ordóñez, and Suzanne Stein  - are thrilled and so pleased to announce the second Issue of the Arts and Science Review, Writing Upside Down Worlds. This Issue contains a collection of fourteen student papers, selected from faculty nominations of best student writing from the 2020-21 academic year.  

We applaud the students whose papers were selected. It was a delight to team up with students to edit their excellent essays and collaborate on the website over the summer months. One goal of this publication is for continued collaboration between students and faculty so that the website becomes a unique public showcase of Arts and Science at OCAD University. This website is a platform to highlight the writing, resilience, and creativity of students- and the faculty who support them.

Thank you to Nicole Vella, web designer and Digital Futures undergraduate student who continues to work closely with both IT and The Review Committee on this digital publication. We are also grateful for the funding received from the Faculty of Arts and Science, which made it possible to award Greta Hamilton with a cash prize for their essay, “Black Hauntology in Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: An American Lyric”. Faculty funds also continue to assist in maintaining the website. A special thanks to this year’s faculty Committee who generously volunteered their time over the summer months.

We are sure you’ll enjoy the second Issue!  Stay tuned for the next essay submission call at the end of Fall and Winter Terms. The Committee for this publication is formed at the end of April. All nominations from the Fall and Winter term are reviewed once a Committee and process have been established. We encourage you to share The Arts and Science Review  as widely as possible !

………………………..
What is Culture
Culture is the shared value system and code of conducts that exist in interconnected and contingent differences across communities, cultures, and nations.
Culture in all its manifestations – conventional, popular, emergent, marginal, and resistant – are constantly shaped by and are (re-)shaping our status quo, ways of thinking, and visions.
Culture is not fixed but constantly shifts through the intersecting influences of politics, economy, populations, migrations, media, and even environment.
The study of culture is empirical as well as theoretical, and most importantly, it is an interdisciplinary endeavor. The set of questions, analyses, and evaluations it involves itself in interacts with other fields of study such as the study of economy and politics; social studies, ethnic studies; cultural anthropology and media studies; identity, gender, sexuality, class, and ideology studies.
     
What is a Forum
A gathering place for exchanges of ideas and views. It is also the agora (Greek), a proto-site of democracy.
 
The ethos of AGCSF:
•    A syncretic forum of all levels of researchers (students, professors, and professionals)
•    Merit- and contents-based (not rank or prestige).
•    No ethnocentric/regional chauvinism or hegemonic nationalism.
•    Cosmopolitanism and exploration of difference and alternative epistemologies.
•    Non-hierarchical organizational model for the promotion of a culture of open discussion.
•    Participatory forum: The participants will consist of the presenters, the discussants, and the audience whose participation is to be equally valued to bring about diverse and multidirectional discussions.
•    The Discussants are an important category of this forum. They are the generators of discussion as well as latent presenters. Those who are interested in presenting are recommended to participate as the discussants first. The discussants – along with the audience – who have previously participated in the forum and substantially contributed to the discussions will be considered with priority as the presenters for the following event.
•    Embodied participation is implied in its growth model based on merit and contribution (rather than on rank or prestige). AGCSF hopes to make this forum truly an intellectually viable place for lively exchange and discussion of ideas and visions, a lively intellectual fora filled with genuine curiosity and openness to different perspectives.
•    Embodied and experiential knowledge: AGCSF values embodied and experiential knowledge, research, and ideas rather than the overly academicized outcomes short of the conductive power to generate grounded and real conversations.
•    ESL students are the most welcome. You are the holders of up-to-date global knowledge. If you have any ideas to share but the only thing that makes you hesitate is your English, please bring a translator or discuss the ideas with us.
