Other Boulanger students include Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson, Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, Gian Carlo Menotti, Ned Rorem, Quincy Jones, Burt Bacharach, Thea Musgrave, Ruth Anderson, and Philip Glass. Le Caine also wrote Canada’s first all tape composition, Dripsody, written by splicing and manipulating the sound of a single drip of water. As a result, this work, which took several years of Anhalt’s life, will probably never be performed.

Breaking degree courses up into smaller, modularised units of study has offered students flexibility and cross disciplinarity in their learning paths and has been widely taken up within the UK university system since first appearing in the 1960s. Deconstruction subjects into constituent components can however be problematic for holistic subjects requiring students to reconstruct these modules back into successful whole bodies of understanding.Product Design courses typically use project modules to achieve this, providing vehicles for students to re unite, synthesis and integrate subject knowledge into a common whole. It can however still be difficult to synchronise modular subject knowledge with project requirements, to avoid burdening staff with excessive modular and project assessment and to provide the scheduling framework that makes organisational sense to students.In 2013/14 course staff at the University of Brighton introduced a quasi non modular course format, based on the delivery of subject knowledge in a block module format in a sequence that mirrored the design process.

The prominent public presence of Asian Indian conservatives of the likes of Dinesh D’Souza, who have held up Asian Indians and other Asians as minorities that African Americans (in particular) should emulate, does not serve to improve relations between the Indian community and other minorities. Having arrived in the United States after the passage of the civil rights legislation in 1964, Indians have had little invested in the immense struggle waged by African Americans to be granted the dignity of citizens, and their largely professional status has inhibited them from entering into coalitions with working class people. That Indians are amply capable of forging wider political alliances (as they have done more frequently in Canada), is amply demonstrated by the work of the Lease Drivers Coalition, a South Asian cab drivers association, itself a part of the Coalition Against Anti Asian Violence (CAAAV), that addresses issues of violence, police harassment, and unsafe working conditions in New York City.
