Biography

Stella teaches a range of First-Year writing courses and, for the Writing Studies minor, offers a decisively interdisciplinary translation course grounded in experiential learning around interlingual and intralingual translation, audio-visual translation (AVT), and a community-engaged para-professional project. Her interest in writing and languages can be traced back to her undergraduate training in Foreign Languages and Literature and, later, the use of historic semantics and translation theories in her dissertation on Beowulf. Stella's current research focuses on the use of findings from contact linguistics, sociolinguistics, collocations in corpus-based learning, and the practices of code-meshing and digital scholarship for college writing pedagogy and, for teaching translation, the intersection of translation theories, transcreation practices, and service learning (more on course and teaching related websites: Code-Meshing Pedagogy and Authentically Urban, Virtually Global: Southwest Rochester).
