Anna Marshall is a Ph.D. candidate in Iberian and Latin American Cultures at Stanford University. She was born and raised in the Carolinas, where she studied Comparative Literature and Latin American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Marshall’s research areas include language politics and queer theory, as well as comparative and digital approaches to language pedagogy. Her qualifying paper entitled “The Trace of an Accent: Translation through Ghostwriting in Budapeste by Chico Buarque” examines the role of ghostwriting as it relates to translation and the globalization of literature. She will present a modified form of the paper at the American Comparative Literature Association’s 2013 conference in Toronto.

Marshall co-chairs the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages’ Gender Studies Reading Group, a forum for graduate students across the Division to read and discuss canonical texts of gender studies. Marshall currently works as Dr. Yvonne Yarbro-Bejarano's research assistant. She also serves as student liaison between the Division and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
