Celebrating Bangla - past and future

By Dr Hanne -Ruth Thompson. She spent almost four years in Bangladesh in the early 90s and her encounter with the Bangla language had a profound effect on her life / work. In 1999 her first book Essential Every Bengali was published in Dhaka. She then went on to do a PhD on Bangla grammar at SOAS in London under the supervision of William Radice. Now she divides her time between teaching Bangla at SOAS and writing a Comprehensive Bengali Grammar for Routledge. She has also written a Practical Bengali Dictionary for Hippocrene in New York.

The Brick Lane Circle organises a unique annual seminar series on Bangladesh and Bangladeshis abroad. Presenters come from a range of backgrounds and from a multitude of perspectives. The series culminates in a conference focusing on an aspect of Bangladeshi history, politics or social paradigm that has a lasting effect on that country.
