Resonance, a creative writing journal published by the department of English and Humanities, BRAC University, was launched at the university’s auditorium on September 24.

A bilingual journal, Resonance contains prose and poetry sections both in Bangla and English. In addition to writings by students of the English and Humanities department, pieces are contributed by students of the university’s other departments. 

Prof Firdous Azim, chair of BRACU’s English Department, and Rifat Munim, literary editor of Dhaka Tribune, were present at the launch. The event was coordinated by Rukhsana Rahim Chowdhury, senior lecturer of English and also chief editor of Resonance

Congratulating the students on successfully bringing out the third issue of the journal, Prof Firdous Azim commented on the importance of maintaining diversity in such a collective project. “I hope that Resonance will introduce other languages of Bangladesh in the future because that’s what it stands for,” she said.

A dance performance by Annesha Biswas and a baul song performance by Islam Nashrif and Mahtazin Rumana Shuchi, among other performances, added an artistic dimension to the program.

Selected readings of a few prose and poetic pieces constituted the biggest attraction at the program. Aurin Shenjuti, Golam Benyeaz, Tasnia Nahla, Puja Sarker and Fabliha Nawar Afra read out pieces written, among many others, by Maruf Raihan, Alvina Chowdhury, Subyeta Sarwar, Isa Ibn Saleheen and Fakrul Alam.
