How are life writing studies positioned in relation to the spatial, transnational and global turns in cultural studies and area studies? Tamara Heger and Verena Baier discuss these questions in their workshop report.
In the 1980s Berkeley was one of the centers of US-Americans’ Nicaragua solidarity work, which supported the Sandinista Revolution. Today remnants from back then can not only be found in UC Berkeley’s extensive archives but also hidden throughout the city. PhD researcher Verena Baier explored them while on a research fellowship there in 2019/20.
