Recently retired from teaching French and European history at the University of California, Berkeley, Peter Sahlins lives in Paris where he spent part of his childhood (with other parts spent in Michigan, Hawaii, and Chicago) and many years in the archives. He’s published books about the French-Spanish border in Catalonia, forest management and popular protest in the Pyrenees, immigration and naturalization in early modern France, and most recently, a history of animals at the court of Louis XIV. He’s currently working on a book or two about Neanderthal culture and prehistoric cave art. A founding board member of Bibliothèques sans frontières, the Paris-based NGO that creates learning spaces for refugees and underserved communities around the world, Peter is also a photographer and inveterate traveler always looking for the next great adventure.
