Mariela Castañeda

Puebla, Mexico


I studied Hispanic literature at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where I currently work as the editor of an academic journal, Applied Linguistic Studies. Along with Venezuelan poet Adalber Salas I am translating the poetry collection Everyone Knows I Am a Haunting, by Trinidadian writer Shivanee Ramlochan. At the same time I’m writing an academic thesis on contemporary women’s writing and historical perspective. As you can guess by reading between the lines, I like transdisciplinary and postcolonial studies, as well as hybrid genres. I am currently writing my first book, a collection of poems and photographs.
