Jodi Campbell, professor of European history at Texas Christian University, has spent at least part of each year in Spain since studying there as a Fulbright scholar in 1996. She has walked across several hundred miles of Spain, following the medieval pilgrimage trail to Santiago. As a historian, she is interested in how ordinary people in the past understood and maintained their relationships and communities, and how we in the present choose to tell stories about the past. She is the author of "Monarchy, Political Culture and Drama in Seventeenth-Century Madrid", and is currently working on a book project on the culture of food in early modern Spain. Jodi received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and teaches courses on the history and culture of Spain and Europe.

His latest book, Confronting the Yugoslav Controversies (2009) presents a common narrative of the recent Balkan wars prepared by an international consortium of Albanian, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, and Western scholars.
