Scholarship and Teaching

My research focuses on translation history and theory. I am particularly interested in the ways in which political and economic realities influenced the selection, translation, and marketing of Spanish American and Brazilian texts published in the U.S. (in English translation) during the twentieth century. My current project focuses on the editorial project of Alfred A. Knopf, one of the most influential publishers for translated literature in the U.S. during this period.

I have taught courses on twentieth-century Latin American narrative, literary translation, translation for healthcare, creative writing, academic writing, ESL, and all levels of Spanish language.
