Biography

Alice completed her undergraduate studies at Monash University, majoring in Spanish and Philosophy. She spent two years in Mexico, studying at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, and returned again in 2014 to complete research for her PhD in translation studies. Her research interests include contemporary Latin American literature, translation ethics, and literal or literary hauntings of urban spaces. She is the translator of Te veré en el desayuno [See You at Breakfast?] (Giramondo 2016), Mexico City author Guillermo Fadanelli's first novel to appear in English, and two novels by Argentine author Mariana Dimópulos: Cada despedida [All My Goodbyes] (Giramondo 2017); and Pendiente [Imminence] (forthcoming 2019, Giramondo). Her translation of excerpts from Fadanelli's extended essay Elogio de la vagancia [In Praise of Vagrancy] was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2016. She also contributes fiction, poetry and reviews to a number of literary magazines and journals. She is the Translations Editor of Cordite Poetry Review, an assistant editor of The AALITRA Review, and vice-president of the Melbourne-based community organisation TransCollaborate.
