Heather Cleary

Profile

Heather Cleary holds a Ph.D. in Latin American and Iberian Cultures from Columbia University. Her dissertation, "The Translator's Visibility: Scenes of Translation in Contemporary Latin American Fiction," posited that the thematic mobilization of key tropes of translation theory offers contemporary writers a non-expository space to interrogate the hierarchies that subtend the circulation of cultural goods in the system known as World Literature. Her current research explores the concepts of authorship and creativity in the digital age. She is currently an editor of the digital, bilingual Buenos Aires Review and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish at Whitman College in Washington State.
