Ignacio Infante will discuss After Translation: The Transfer and Circulation of Modern Poetics Across the Atlantic (Fordham University Press, 2013), which rethinks the theoretical paradigm of Anglo-American “modernism” based on the transnational, interlingual, and transhistorical features of the work of key modern poets writing on both sides of the Atlantic— namely, the Portuguese Fernando Pessoa; the Chilean Vicente Huidobro; the Spaniard Federico Garcia Lorca; the San Francisco–based poets Jack Spicer, Robert Duncan, and Robin Blaser; the Barbadian Kamau Brathwaite; and the Brazilian brothers Haroldo and Augusto de Campos.
Ignacio Infante (Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, Rutgers University) is Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature and Spanish at Washington University in St. Louis. His main fields of research include modern poetry, modernist and avant-garde poetics, Peninsular cultural studies, transatlantic literary studies, comparative literature, and translation theory. He has also published two literary translations, Una ola (Barcelona: Random House Mondadori, 2002)—a translation into Spanish of John Ashbery’s A Wave, and Cómo viven los muertos (Barcelona: Random House Mondadori, 2003)—a translation of Will Self’s How the Dead Live.
