I am a Lecturer in Translation Studies in the department of Modern Languages. I teach translation theory and research methods on the MAs in Translation Studies (distance and campus-based). My research interests are: translation stylistics and the artistic nature of translation, the reception of translations and their impact on literary landscapes, and the relationship between gender identity and translation.
I have a strong interest in research methodology and I am currently collaborating with artist and researcher Heather Connelly to explore the impact of artistic research on translation studies. As part of this project, I have participated in the following events and performances:
- Escurrir, a collaborative script performed by Heather Connelly and Gabriela Saldanha and presented at: Translation as Collaboration, The Poettrio Experiment, Newcastle University, 20 July 2017
- A video of Escurrir, featuring a Mandarin addition by Annie Xu, was presented at Researching Translation & Interpreting The Challenge & Promise of Interdisciplinary, Baker Centre for Translation today and Intercultural Studies, Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, 13 October 2017
- Linguistic hospitality, a performance at the Translation Studies Annual Research Forum, Birmingham Centre for Translation, 15 May 2017
- This is me, script in English and Spanish developed by Heather Connelly with translation by Gabriela Saldanha performed at InDialogue December 2016
