Ten years ago, as the editor of Estudios Interdisciplinarios de América Latinay el Caribe (EIAL), I asked my colleagues at the editorial board to suggestnames of leading Latin Americanists for our international advisory board.The first name brought up by all participants in the meeting was that of TulioHalperin Donghi. For all of us present in the meeting held at our Institute ofLatin American History and Culture, he symbolized the image of a distinguishedhistorian, whose biography and scholarly work bridged the Spanish speakingand English speaking academic communities of Latin Americanists, a nexusbetween Europe and the Americas.
