Rosemary Arrojo is Professor of Comparative Literature at Binghamton University, where she directed the Translation Research and Instruction Program from 2003 to 2007 and helped implement the first Ph.D. in Translation Studies in the United States. Before that she taught translation studies in Brazil for almost twenty years. Her work has focused on the interface between translation studies and contemporary thought (deconstruction, psychoanalysis, and postcolonial and gender studies). She has published extensively on the topic both in Portuguese and in English. Samples of her work have also been translated in German, Spanish, Turkish, and Hungarian.
