About

My research focuses on translation in practice and theory, gender and translation, women surrealist artists/writers in the Americas, and transnational literature in small literary journals and presses.


I am a longtime translator of contemporary Spanish-language literature. Translations include Letters, Dreams and Other Writings by Remedios Varo (Wakefield Press, 2018), Baroni: A Journey (Almost Island, 2017) and My Two Worlds (Open Letter, 2011) by Sergio Chejfec, Theory of Colors by Mercedes Roffé (belladonna*, 2005), and The Magic Lantern by José Tomás de Cuéllar (Oxford University Press, 2000). I was Translation Coordinator for Stages of Conflict: A Critical Anthology of Latin American Theater and Performance (University of Michigan Press, 2008). From 2014-2016 I co-chaired the PEN America Translation Committee.
