Reading for DD313

Most of the time our knowledge of International relations is served by the general media – what is brought up on the TV or headline programmes of the radio, which may (or not) be sufficient for daily life, but your studies will get a considerable boost by plugging into a more comprehensive set of media.
Of course, there is a blizzard of media that you can link into, but my suggestions are mostly available for a reduced cost or free to students and might widen your horizons.
Reading – some are free, and then you need a subscription
The Economist
The FT
The New York Times
Foreign Affairs
Podcasts – all free
BBC World News podcast
The Globalist
The Foreign Desk
The FT World Weekly
This is just the tip of the iceberg, and as part of the course we will be exploring what makes a good source and resource for our studies – a fundamental level 3 skill, but these are good starters.
Do you have any suggestions of your own?
