Head of Translation Studies / Director of the Committee for Equality & Diversity in LSS / Coordinator of Multilingualism and Translation at the Centre for Language Research at Aston (CLaRA) / Member of Critical Inquiry into Society and Culture (CCISC)
The principal direction of my research concerns the political role of translation in the construction of gender and cultural/national identities in the field of Hispanic Studies, with a focus on the Galician context. Having identified that at present there is little dialogue between Translation Studies and Feminist Theory within the context of Hispanic and Galician Studies, I intend to open up new avenues of dialogue, enriching the field of Translation Studies through interdisciplinary encounters with feminist historiography, literature, cultural studies and linguistics.
Other research interests include:
I have written blind peer-reviews for The Translator, Target, Madrygal, the European Journal of Women’s Studies, Gender and Language, Lectora, revista de dones i sexualitat, Women Studies International Forum, Estudos de Lingüística Galega.
