"I’m a Senior Lecturer who teaches in the Comparative Literature, English, and Iberian and Latin American departments. As a Spanish-English bilingual I grew up fascinated by the different possibilities that languages afford speakers, as well as the constraints they impose. My doctoral studies focused on 19th- and 20th-century Spanish literature, particularly in the cultural relationships between Spain and the United States. My interests include poetry, transatlantic and translation studies, and interdisciplinary arts. I’m passionate about teaching students to think critically and creatively about language usage and translation. As a recipient of the Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize, I like to think that this passion translates to my students. I’m the author of Forth and Back: Translation, Dirty Realism, and The Spanish Novel, 1975-1995 (Bucknell UP, 2013). My short stories, poems, and translations have appeared in the Kenyon Review, The Harvard Review, The Iowa Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, The Missouri Review, Narrative, Pleiades, The Threepenny Review, and other journals. In recent years I’ve developed a visual arts practice which includes poetry-based installations."
