ABOUT DEENA STRYKER
|Writing in Paris, dreaming of
|With Jerome Robbins||With Rene Clement||Amre Moussa
At a conference on the Mediterranean, 1986
began her career as a multilingual journalist at France Presse in Rome,
then published a day-by-day account of the shooting of the film "8
1/2", which was translated into several languages.* In 1963, she
did the first Western interview with Fidel Castro after the Bay of
Pigs, for "Paris Match" just before the Kennedy assassination.
After a five-year stay in Poland and Hungary, where she did radio work, she taught Future Studies at the University of Massachusetts, and during the Carter administration was a speech writer for the Assistant Secretary of State for Cultural Affairs, Joe Duffy. Her first article on U.S.-Soviet relations was published in the State Department's in-house journal.
Others were published after her return to France in Le Monde,
Latitudes and Geopolitique. While a free-lance
specializing in political and developmental issues, she published
"Une autre Europe, un autre Monde"**, where she applied a systems
approach to the Cold War, situating Europe in relation to the United
States and the Soviet Union.
Subsequently, her interest in systemic thinking led her to consider how the links between modern science and ancient intuitions might affect the ecological and spiritual crisis of the post-Cold War world. In "The Case for Sacredness", she pleads for a cultural transformation and a new paradigm that could help solve our end-of-millenium crisis.
