Chronicling the Story of Greater Palestine's rappers - on the film 'Slingshot Hip Hop,' about Palestinian hip hop (The Daily Star)
(via hawgblawg)

Oil discovery transformed Iran (BBC)

Also, I recently got a couple of books; as you can see I'm still on a fiction/poetry kick. After reading non-fiction almost exclusively for the past few years (university will do that to you), it's been really refreshing to get lost in a story or take in a good poem. Here are my most recent acquisitions:
  • Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
  • Seven Valleys of Love: a Bilingual Anthology of Woman Poets from Middle Ages Persia to Present Day Iran (translated by Sheema Kalbasi)
