On the Atlantic Fence

Posted on Updated on

To begin this blog, I immediately thought of one of my favorite viral snapshots. We’ve come a long way in shortening the distance across the Atlantic – a journey that once took months by steamer or even minutes by telegraph now takes virtually seconds online (although if you browse the sometimes pessimistic current events commentary, it sometimes seems like Europe and the US are as far apart as they ever were).

Yet those issues, and others like them, will hopefully be addressed in future posts and discussion. This blog aims to pull out both interesting (sometimes amusing) and scholastically worthwhile information about European politics, and I welcome all readers who find themselves torn between continents.
