Our crew was commissioned to work on the digital initiative in English language of Le Figaro, France’s oldest and second-largest newspaper. Valerie Samson has been a journalist for the international section of Le Figaro for almost 15 years. She worked directly with Babel Linguistics as she traveled across the United States writing a series of posts. Her project, “TransAmerica: Around the United States in 460 days”, is a fascinating look at American culture and politics through the eyes of a French reporter. Samson is one of the lucky recipients of the Knight-Wallace Fellowship from the University of Michigan.
