Lecturer, Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies
Rebecca researches the intersection of poetry with the visual arts and other media. She focuses on the 20th century and contemporary periods and examines intellectual, aesthetic, and translational exchanges in the American hemisphere, and between the Americas and the UK. She has published on such topics as the relationship between participatory poetry and conceptual art in Brazil and the US, the material aspects of translation, and inventive forms of Chilean and US poetry such as artist books and postcard poems.
