Gabriella Martin

Graduate Student, Spanish

Gabriella Martin is a PhD Candidate in Hispanic Studies, with a Graduate Certificate in Translation Studies. She holds BAs in Spanish and Creative Writing from the University of Michigan. Her dissertation, “Iberian Babel: Spain’s Translational Literatures, 1939-2018,” examines how acts of translation are performed or made visible within “original” (that is, not-translated) works of Iberian literatures from the Spanish Civil War to the current Catalan independence movement. Through a study of pseudotranslation, adaptation, self-translation, and multilingual literature, her dissertation traces how translation is deployed to re-negotiate the boundaries between self and other, region and nation, local and global, original and copy, in moments of exile, transition, and crisis. She is also an active literary translator and the co-creator of the Wash U Translators Collective. Her translations of Iberian fiction and poetry have appeared in Asymptote, Absinthe, and The Brooklyn Rail in Translation, among others. This Fall, Martin is a Graduate Fellow in Residence at the Washington University Center for the Humanities.
