About the author: Maya Kandel
I am a historian, associate researcher at Université Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle University (CREW).

CV/Resume and publications: LinkedIn
Articles en English: several articles were translated by Institut Montaigne: you can read them here (scroll down from bio)
I grew up in Paris with an American father, a French mother, and two little sisters. I still have strong family ties on both sides of the Atlantic.
In a previous life, I was a journalist in New York, Paris and Latin America. In 2000, I was the “Young Journalist” laureate of the Hachette Foundation for print media. Mostly freelancing (in French and English) from Paraguay to Cuba, also New York on « Silicon Alley« , the Meatpacking District, and this too; including a great interview (in German) with Rem Koolhaas, another (in English) with David Dinkins; and even articles for Forbes.
I also worked for many years as a writer for French television (doing trailers for France 5 and France 3) – which financed my PhD years and some reporting.
