The holidays are over and 2023 is promising to be a peaceful and prosperous year for us all. The January edition of Europe & Me includes three articles: First is a personal perspective on the popular protests in Iran by E&M’s new author Rana, an Iranian woman studying in Germany. Second is a teaser for a series of conversations with people involved in the grassroots support for Ukrainians from abroad, interviewed by E&M’s Clémentine Dècle-Classen and edited by Sindre Langmoen. Finally, and less tragically, you can read E&M editor’s Isla Mae Norman’s recollection about how she owes her childhood integration into a small Italian village to Harry Styles and One Direction.
