Natalie Alcoba is an Argentine-Canadian journalist based in Buenos Aires. She writes extensively about the feminist movement in Argentina, and is interested more broadly in collective organization in Latin America and how resistance and community are forged on the so-called margins. She has co-produced short documentaries on the impact of the pandemic on female workers, on land occupations, and the legalization of abortion.
Prior to moving to Argentina, she was a reporter for more than a decade in Canada at newspapers such as the National Post, the Toronto Star, the Montreal Gazette, and The Hamilton Spectator. She served as managing editor of VICE News Canada for four years, shepherding coverage on national issues such as the crisis of unsafe drinking water in Indigenous communities and the opioid epidemic. She has also reported from Sierra Leone and India.
She has taught at Ryerson University’s School of Journalism, where she obtained her degree. She is a past Southam Journalism fellow at Massey College at the University of Toronto.
