Isaac Giménez is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Spanish and Portuguese Department at UCLA. He earned his Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures from the same university, where he specialized in Latin American studies, with a particular focus on Afro-Luso-Brazilian literature. His research interests, both academic and artistic, include performance poetry and visual studies; recycling poetics and readership; and the intersections between corporality, authorship, and intermitotic translations. With a degree in translation and interpreting studies, Isaac has professional experience in legal, audiovisual, and technical translation. Currently, he participates in the Working Group on the Comedia in Translation and Performance and also collaborates with Al Otro Lado, a non-profit which provides legal and humanitarian support to refugees, deportees, and other migrants in the US and Tijuana.
