MemberDeborah C. Bowen

I spent the first half of my life in the U.K. and the second half in Canada. My undergraduate degree is from Oxford, and my doctoral degree from the University of Ottawa. Since 1996 I’ve taught at Redeemer University College, a small liberal arts college in S.W. Ontario. My two books consider interactions between postmodern literature and Christian faith, partly because these seem so unlikely. I regularly review Canadian poetry, and love walking and classical music, sometimes together.

…2018 Ph.D. in Spanish (expected)
University of Ottawa
Working Title: “Translating la voz de la diáspora: Balancing Foreignization, Domestication, and Power in English Translations of the Diaspora Varieties of Judeo-Spanish and Spanglish”
Advisors: James Novoa & Clara Foz


2010      M.A. in Spanish
University of Ottawa
Advisor: José María Ruano de la Haza


Remy Attig is a PhD candidate in Spanish at the University of Ottawa. His research focuses on the English translation of Spanish vernaculars published in the diaspora, more specifically the modern Judeo-Spanish texts of Matilda Koén-Sarano and the Spanglish chronicles of Susana Chávez-Silverman. In his thesis, Remy focuses on experimental translation that resists domestication of the texts through a variety of English-language literary and linguistic devices. This translation approach is informed by the intersections of language, sociolinguistics, power, resistance, and identity. He is currently preparing a book project to explore the emergence of transnational costumbrismo in the literature of several borderland populations. In addition, Remy is interested in the role of translation in empowering or disenfranchising immigrant populations in social movements.
