What I did on my sabbatical (Fall 2008):
I taught two online courses – yes, it was on sabbatical - and went to Galicia in late October.  While there, I was invited by the University of Birmingham, UK, which has a Centre for Galician Studies, with support from the Xunta de Galicia.  I taught a master class on translation, on the topic of the cultural context for ‘Translating Rosalía de Castro’ and gave a lecture on María Xosé Queizán’s ¡Sentinela, Alerta!, as a modern-day feminist ‘translation’ of Rosalía.  It was an opportunity to meet people and share ideas on research, Galicia, and much more.  Returning from the UK, I gave a paper on the Galician playwright Jenaro Marinhas del Valle in A Coruña and another on translating Claudio Rodríguez Fer‘s book of poetry, Tigres de ternura, in Rianxo.
