How to Link to the Bahrainian Blogosphere

Want to get a first-hand take at what’s happening on the streets of Bahrain and other parts of the Middle East, as well as the rest of the world?  The meta-blog Global Voices provides an excellent way to listen in to the blogosphere in Bahrain and elsewhere.

Global Voices Special Coverage: Bahraini Protests and Middle Eastern Revolutions
“Horrific accounts of the barbaric pre-dawn raid in Bahraini capital Manama, in which protesters were dispersed by security forces from the Pearl Roundabout where they had set up camp to press for demands, continue to emerge”, writes Amira Al Hussaini, Middle East and North Africa Editor for Global Voices as she covers the political unrest in her home country of Bahrain.  Since December 2010, the world has been witnessing a wave of regime-changing protests in the Middle East and Global Voices authors and editors have been on the forefront of the media coverage with up-to-date postings, tweets, and analysis of these history making series of events.

My latest book, Fear of Breakdown: Politics and Psychoanalysis, explores what is behind the upsurge of virulent nationalism and intransigent politics across the world today. My other writings include Democracy and the Political Unconscious; Habermas, Kristeva, and Citizenship; Julia Kristeva; and numerous articles and book chapters. Edited volumes include Standing with the Public: the Humanities and Democratic Practice and a special issue of the philosophy journal Hypatia on feminist engagements in democratic theory.
