Here are a couple of sociology media resources that might be of interest: the Sociology Spotlight and the United Nations webcast.
iPhone & iPad
For those of you with iPhones and iPads here’s a free app: Sociology Spotlight By Wiley Publishing. I can’t check it out myself as I don’t have either (I’m an Androider!), but it seems to have some useful features, including:
Latest information on key Sociology conferences
Frommer’s travel guide to major conference locations
Latest abstracts for Sociology articles and books
Follow your favourite publications
Latest news in and around the discipline from Sociology Lens
The United Nations Webcast posts regular videos on global issues, discussions of United Nations policy development and General Assembly meetings. I recommend the latest panel on sexual exploitation, abuse and human trafficking in post-conflict situations, which is in response to the upcoming film The Whistleblower. The film highlights sexual crimes involving United Nations Peacekeeping Forces in Bosnia-Herzegovina. You can also watch short reports on topical matters, such as Egyptian youth social protest via social media. You can also download pdf transcripts of the webcasts. They also have a great YouTube Channel and Facebook page. In mid-September, I watched as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon answered live questions from the public via various social media.
Languages: mostly English, some General Assembly Meetings in other languages.
