Brown Library Guide to Arab Revolution Resources
To my existing list of library guides put together, or recommended, by friends and colleagues, I add this one:
The Brown University Library Guide to the Arab Spring 2011-Present by Dr. Ian Straughn, Joukowsky Family Middle East Studies Librarian at Brown University.
I add it for four reasons:
- It was recommended by Amahl Bishara. She’s a media anthropologist who regularly teaches one of my early papers, so she clearly recognizes good material when she sees it.
- It lists this blog as one of thirteen “blogs about the Arab Spring” (again, showing clear-sighted ability to direct students to excellent content)
- Brown is my PhD alma mater.
- Dr. Straughn touted it as part of a presentation on teaching about the revolution at at the American Anthropological Association meetings.
