Bordeaux Chair

Bonjour du pays de la chocolatine ! 


My name is Jamie Perosi-Doughty and I have been in France for about twelve years now. I was born in Saratoga Springs, NY where I lived until about 8 or 9, then moved to Parsippany, New Jersey where I continue to hold residence with my husband and also where I am registered to vote. Thanks to a series of fortunate events, I was able to use my undergraduate degree in French history and translation, as well as in political science to move to Nice, France where I spent two years as an English teacher.  


Knowing that I always wanted to continue my studies, I did a Masters at the Université Montesquieu Bordeaux IV in Political Science, specializing in comparative political philosophy.  Afterwards, I literally went to the other side of the (tram) tracks, at Université Bordeaux Montaigne where I completed my PhD In American Studies, focusing specifically on the liberalism/pragmatism of John Dewey and Reinhold Niebuhr.  


I currently teach comparative law at a variety of private business schools in Bordeaux and am a certified tour guide as well.  


I support Democrats Abroad because as global citizens we have a responsibility to be the leaders that we once were. To lead through example and inspiration. To demonstrate strength through support, education, and community.

  • The Bordeaux Chapter and 2022 Needs You!

    Hello everyone!

    2022 is going to be a make or break year for Democrats and for America in general. I know that Midterms are never a fun topic, but I cannot stress enough how important it is for everyone to get involved, get active, and vote this year.  Even if you've registered to vote before, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you re-register because a lot of States have changed their voting laws since the 2020 election.  

    For more more information on how to register to vote from abroad please visit the following webstie:  It has great information and is easy to follow guidelines for all States. 


    Also, your Bordeaux chapter is looking for volunteers for phone banking, events, or just overall membership activity.  If you have ideas of activities you want to do, or would be interested in attending, please let us know! For a list of February and March's activities, please see the email blast sent out at the beginning of the month. Or if you prefer, you can email us at: [email protected] 

    It's going to be a challenge, but we can't give up. There is too much at stake to lower our defenses now. So please, contact us, meet up with us, and share your ideas!
