This section of the website will be updated with information on my academic and non-academic side projects as these develop.
The Tour of the world project is devoted to translating, encoding, mapping, analysing, and publishing El viaje del mundo, Pedro Ordóñez de Ceballos’s autobiographical account of his extraordinary travels around the world in the closing decades of the sixteenth century, first published in 1614. Made possible by the generous support of the Colombian National Library, it aims to produce the first academic edition and full English translation of the book, publishing instalments online in a collaborative framework as the project progresses. This is done entirely in my free time.

In 2011, I also began to translate the work of Spanish playwright Aurora Mateos. For more information, visit her website: www.auroramateos.com. More details soon.
