Research output: Other contribution

36 Downloads (Pure)


I am one of the privileged few to have experienced Dhaka University—the nation's citadel of higher education le plus excellent—from both sides of the spectrum, first as a student and then as an academic. I entered Dhaka University as an undergraduate student in the Department of English in 1973 and graduated with a Bachelor's (with Honours) and a Master's degree in 1978. I returned to Dhaka University after completing my PhD in English literature from Flinders University, Australia, to take up the position of Assistant Professor of English in 1992. But an offer from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 1993 cut short my teaching stint.
