Rungh magazine published as a "South Asian Quarterly of Culture, Comment and Criticism" from 1992-1997 under one editorial team, and from 1997 to 2000 under a second editorial team.
Founded by Zool Suleman and Sherazad Jamal, the magazine was a pioneer in its cross/multi-disciplinary approach which, while rooted in the identity politics of the time, also looked beyond identity in its scope. Operating as a non-profit society with a national Advisory Board, Rungh played a key role in defining what South Asian culture meant in Canada during the 1990’s and beyond. The best way to understand Rungh is to look at the archive issues which are included in this site.
Rungh was relaunched as a web based project in 2017 and publishes new work. Rungh’s new tag line is “Rungh.Means.Colour” and the relaunched Rungh can be found at www.rungh.org. Rungh is committed to exploring new conversations within a context sensitive to past influences/dialogues and refreshing them and nesting them within the intersectional cultural contexts of the present. Newly commissioned work. Connected conversations. Archive. Alive. Arch(a-live).
