Elena Gagovska

Elena Gagovska is a freelance journalist, researcher and Master's student in North American

Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. In 2019, she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Humanities,

the Arts and Social Thought with a concentration in Literature and Rhetoric from Bard College

Berlin (BCB). Her pursuit of journalism began precisely during her undergraduate studies when

she started writing for Die Bärliner, the BCB student blog. After just a semester of being a

contributing writer, Elena was asked to become an Associate Editor in addition to continuing her

writing endeavors. She wrote about a variety of topics, such as the racialization of Eastern

Europeans, immigration policies, and feminism. During her time at Die Bärliner, the blog's

readership increased dramatically, especially due to the political nature of the articles she

published and edited. Through her exposure at Die Bärliner, Elena received offers to write for other

publications, such as Public Seminar, Jacobin magazine, and in 2019 the newly formed

Macedonian language feminist publication Meduza for which she has written since its inception.

She has since been published in a variety of Macedonian, regional and international publications

among which are Sloboden Pecat, PINA, Balkan Insight, Unbias the News and the Women's Media
