Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research interests include: 

- Translation and memory (collective; cultural, historical)
- Translation and testimony (witnessing; storytelling, silences)
- Translation sites/zones (place and space; sites of memory, the archive)
- Translation and agency (narrative voice; narrative position, collective authorship)
- Literary translation (as a medium of cultural memory; as the recovery of historical memory)
