Lorena Terando

Lorena Terando is Associate Professor and Chair at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s department of Translation & Interpreting Studies. She teaches literary and non-literary translation (French and Spanish to English) as well as translation theory and other courses. Her interests include trauma studies, witnessing in translation, the rhetorics of translating pain, and women in translation. Her current research centers on the translation of the testimonial of women in wartime and the role of the translator in the process. Using her translations as a springboard (most recently Spiral of Silence; Elvira Sanchez Blake’s Espirales de silencios) she explores facets of memory and loss in Colombia’s ongoing political and social conflict, and the roles translators play as mediators and voice for and with women in situations of conflict.
