︎ ︎ ︎

Founded by Zool Suleman and Sherazad Jamal, the first iteration of Rungh was a pioneer in its cross/multi-disciplinary approach, which while rooted in identity politics, also looked beyond identity in its scope.

The very first issue was launched at Desh Pardesh in Toronto,Ontario in the Summer of 1992.

This predecessor 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. During that period, in addition to the magazine, Rungh also programmed events, engaged in advocacy to change Canada's art systems, and fostered a creative hub of activities. 

Rungh was dormant from 2000 to 2005, and from 2005 to 2017, it existed as an "in process" webspace.The current Rungh magazine sprouts from the roots of this rich history.

Re-launched in September 2017, the new Rungh project is committed to revisiting these past conversations within a context-sensitive to past influences/dialogues and refreshing them and nesting them within the inter-sectional cultural contexts of the present.
