Europe in the Americas


Europe in the Americas is a journal precisely about Europe’s presence in the Americas: sorting out our history and current contact with the Americas and her people, as well as envisioning possibilities for future actions, interactions, and policy.

Fluent in several languages, she has since lived and worked in societies in the Americas and Africa as well as western & Balkan Europe. She is a fellow of Wilton Park & the Salzburg Seminar, and participated in the European Social Forums of 2003-04. In 2004, she was a speaker for the ESF plenary “Alliances We Need to Fight Racism” held at London’s Alexandra Palace.
