Biography

Stella teaches a range of first-year writing courses and, for the Writing Studies minor, she offers an interdisciplinary translation course grounded in experiential learning in interlingual and intralingual translation, audio-visual translation, and a community-engaged para-professional project. Her interest in writing and language 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, corpus-based learning, 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: Encouraging the Expression of Identity in Writing, Speaking, and Arguing and Authentically Urban, Virtually Global: Southwest Rochester).
