Filip Noubel · April, 2021

As the Managing Editor for Global Voices, I explore new ways, formats and technologies to tell stories grounded in local knowledge aimed at a global audience. I first started in GV in 2015 as a writer and translator, and now enjoy editing, training, and launching new projects.
Having worked and lived mostly in Central and Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus, Central Asia, the Himalayan region and East Asia, I write about those regions with a particular focus on identity and historical memory, minority groups, arts and culture, language, and less known cross-regional cultural influences. I often teach on-line about media and culture-related issues, and have a passion for literary translation, also acting as Editor at Large for Central Asia at Asymptote Journal.
As this year marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the USSR, one of the places I grew up, I am focusing on reflecting on this life-changing event.
