This blog is a mix of Internet curation and global news commentary. It covers international issues, with particular attention to South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. The primary concerns and interests are conflict, international development, gender, and social movements as well as the politics of art and pop culture. Someone once described this blog as "News, Politics, and Spunk!" TPN is run by (and is the professional web presence for) journalist and blogger Torie Rose DeGhett, who works freelance and has written for publications like the Guardian, The LA Review of Books and Guernica Magazine and is a contributing arts and culture writer for Aslan Media.
