black and (A)broad: traveling beyond the limitations of identity author Carolyn Vines is an American expatriate living in the Netherlands. Her inspiration is her multicultural family. Her passion is language, and she speaks Spanish and Dutch fluently.
Carolyn is an author, editor and award-winning blogger. Her work has been published in local Dutch newspapers and in The Telegraph. She recently translated a novel by a critically-acclaimed Curaçaoan author that delves into the question of post-colonial identity.
Carolyn earned an MA in Latin American literature from the University of Maryland, College Park, where she was later admitted into doctoral candidacy. She has taught Spanish, English and literature in universities in the US and in the Netherlands.
black and (A)broad: traveling beyond the limitations of identity, Carolyn’s memoir, spans her twenty years’ living and traveling abroad and shares how she found the inspiration to transcend the limitations of her identity as a black woman. It will be released in August 2010.
