Martín Gaspar’s research engages a wide range of fields that includes Latin American intellectual history since the 19th Century; modern Latin American fiction and contemporary film; translation studies; visibility in literature and the media; and narrative theory.
He is the author of La condición traductora (Beatriz Viterbo, forthcoming), a historical and formal study of the rise of translator-heroes and narrators in Latin American fiction since the 1990s. His articles have appeared in the Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies and the Latin American Literary Review, and he has co-authored the literary anthology Letras de hispanoamérica (Vista, 2013).
Currently, he is engaged in two projects: an examination of the functions of anonymity in Latin American media, literature, and film, and a social history of translation in Latin America.
He teaches courses on literature of the Americas and Latin American literature, film, and cultural studies. In June of 2017, he offered a graduate seminar on "Traducción y cultura: teorías recientes y una mirada sobre el caso argentino" at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina.
