Elles Houweling Articles 3
Elles graduted from the University College London with a degree in European Social and Political Studies. Her specialization was in international politics and law. She has been a freelance writer for about a year and is mainly interested in cultural and socio-political issues. Elles believes that, to understand how today’s society works, one needs to understand the roots of that society. Thus, to understand how international relations work, one needs to understand the intricate and oftentimes delicate history that connect different groups of people. Writing for the New Historian is the perfect way to combine several of her biggest passions; history, travel, and writing.
