Humanities Division

Lindsay Griffiths is a PhD candidate in the departments of English Literature and African American Studies. Prior to graduate school, she earned her B.A. from CUNY Hunter College in English Literature and Spanish Translation. Her research examines African American and Afro-Caribbean writers, their translators, and the texts between them. In this triangulation, she explores the reciprocal relationship between translation and the Black diaspora. Lindsay is also the translator of Mercedes Cebrián’s Burp: Gastronomical Writings and a selection of poems in Almudena Vidoretta’s Algunos hombres insaciables, and she is the co-translator of a forthcoming short story collection by Mario Michelena.
