Manuscript Seminar in English
I’m a Mexamerican writer, the daughter of WW II Polish Jewish refugees who settled in Mexico City, and a long-time resident of the US. My work chronicles the cultural and political life of the Hispanic community in los Estados Unidos, most recently in the book Mexamérica: Una Cultura Naciendo, published in 2017 by Ediciones Proceso, which highlights the contributions of Mexamericans to the arts, academia, sciences, business, politics and diplomacy in the United States.
I studied economics at ITAM (the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México), philosophy at SUNY Purchase, where I did my BA, and went on to receive an MA and PhD from New York University, where I wrote my thesis on Hasidic dance.
I’m married to Eran Broshy, an Israeli who grew up in Austria, where his father was Israel’s representative at the UN Atomic Energy Agency. We live in Manhattan, where we raised our two sons, Gideon and Gabriel
