About me: 
Shaula was born in Havana, Cuba. She obtained her Ph.D. from Sapienza University of Rome, where she studied since the undergraduate level. Her main interests lie in anthropology, literature and human rights, three disciplines she believes can make the world a safer and more tolerant place. Shaula likes to think of the world in terms of "critical geography," a definition coined by African-American writer Toni Morrison. It refers to a vision of the world in which cultural borders are constantly negotiated, and the major achievement consists in highlighting the unity of mankind. Shaula combines her academic interest in critical geography, indigenous studies, human rights and Latin American and Caribbean studies with a strong interest in the fields of international development and communication. Trilingual translator, educator and article writer, she is fluent in English, Italian and Spanish and currently lives in Rome, Italy.
