Tahir Madiha

Madiha Tahir researches surveillance, survival, and the politics of drone warfare. She is currently finishing her dissertation at Columbia University. Madiha is the director of Wounds of Waziristan (2013), a short documentary film on Pakistani survivors of drone attacks. She is the co-founder of the bilingual, multimedia journal Tanqeed with Mahvish Ahmad, and the co-editor of Dispatches from Pakistan (2012), a volume of essays in a series on timely issues spearheaded by Vijay Prashad. But mostly, her claim to fame is arguing with Pakistani elites and when possible, the NSA.
