Margaret
B. Carson

Professor Margaret Carson grew up in New York City and discovered the beautiful language of Spanish at Midwood High School in Brooklyn. A literary translator from Spanish to English, she has translated the stories, letters, automatic writings and dream narratives of the Spanish surrealist artist Remedios Varo. Her current research is focused on Varo’s notebooks and on the artist’s posthumous life.

She has also written about the gender gap and other gaps in literary translation and co-edited a blog devoted to raising the visibility of women writers in translation (Women in Translation).

Before receiving her PhD, she was a longtime ESL and literacy instructor in adult education programs serving refugees and recent immigrants. She enjoys working with students at all levels to acquire and improve their Spanish, with an emphasis on learning by doing.
