Carrie Gibson

Carrie Gibson was born in the US but has lived in the UK for the past two decades. After a career in journalism, mostly spent at the Guardian newspaper in London, she completed a PhD in history at Cambridge in 2010, focussing on the Hispanic Caribbean islands of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) during the Haitian Revolution. Her love of the Caribbean led her to write Empire's Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean from Columbus to the Present Day, which was published in 2014. In her latest book, El Norte: The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America, she returns to the United States and examines its complex relationship with its Spanish-speaking neighbours. Carrie lives in London and continues to contribute to media outlets, including the Observer (UK), the BBC, and Vox, among others. More at carriegibson.co.uk
