Brain Food at Tanqeed

This year, we at Tanqeed intend on bringing recommendations of lectures, essays, articles, videos on a range of subjects including politics, culture and society from Pakistan and beyond. This will be done on a bi-weekly basis. The material uploaded to our Tumblr will be accessible for everyone, including PDFs and recordings. You should follow us on Twitter for shorter and more frequent updates. Subscribe to us for free and don’t forget to message us if you have any questions or comments.
