HIST120 Students,

There is an endless amount of resources to find news and analysis of the Arab Spring. As we discussed in section, remember that all media and assessments of the Arab Spring have political bias, some more apparent than others. Some potential media sources include: Al Jazeera English, BBC Middle East, Al-Monitor, Jadaliyya, and Haaretz. There are many more news sources, and some sites will be more useful depending on your query or country of interest. Remember that you can always use twitter to search with a hashtag, such as #Iraq or #Syria. Finally, remember to also look at more traditional academic sources, such as the bibliography for this course or academic journals such as the International Journal of Middle East Studies, Contemporary Arab Affairs, Journal of Islamic Studies, and the Arab Studies Journal.
