The Center for European Studies’ Magazine


Wanderlust. is the Center’s in-house magazine that highlights recent Center events, accomplishments of European Studies faculty and graduate students, travel pieces written by graduate students and the Center’s interns and other Europe-related pieces for our Gainesville and global audiences.

We chose the name Wanderlust. to represent the desire to travel and immerse ourselves in different cultures, societies and languages that bring us all together.
