Daniel Balderston joined the University of Pittsburgh in 2008 as Mellon Professor of Hispanic Languages and Literatures. He is director of the Borges Center, and editor of Variaciones Borges. Before coming to Pitt, he taught at Tulane and the University of Iowa. His research focuses on Borges and his contemporaries (Onetti, Silvina Ocampo, Roa Bastos) and writers whose work responds in different ways to Borges's work (Wilcock, Piglia, Saer). He also works on gender and sexuality studies and in literary translation (and in translation studies). His work ranges across Spanish America and Brazil, with a particular emphasis on the River Plate area.
