A former Cambridge University academic, Marella Hoffman is a Fellow of Britain’s Royal Anthropological Society. Raised in rural Ireland among strong oral traditions, she has also lectured or held research awards at universities in France, Switzerland, Ireland and the US, and was for a decade chief editor of a public policy magazine for government in Cambridge.
Hoffman's work has won major financial awards from governments and universities. Her transdisciplinary methods build bridges between academia and the actual implementation of social change. Her use of oral histories to circumvent conflict and uncover policy solutions has been taught by government as a positive practice model.
A keen windsurfer, she often puts the wind and the water before the calls of the world. To view her other books or contact her, visit www.marellahoffman.com
