Paola Bohórquez

Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream

Paola Bohórquez is an Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, at Woodsworth College, and she is the Director of the Academic Writing Centre and Coordinator of the Academic Bridging Program. Her pedagogical practice centers reading, writing, and rhetoric as technologies of agency and self-transformation, and her current interdisciplinary research on digital annotation and commonplacing strategies leverages classical rhetorical pedagogies in the design of curricular innovations that expand and deepen the range of students’ print and digital reading practices. Informed by her own translingual and multilocal experiences, Paola’s academic work has explored relations between language and identity, translation, and the condition of living between languages. She is the co-editor, with Verónica Garibotto, of the collection Psychoanalysis as Social and Political Discourse in Latin America and the Caribbean (Routledge, 2022) and has published in the Journal of Intercultural Studies, Synthesis, and Tusaaji: A Translation Review, and in the collections On and Off the Page: Mapping Place in Text and Culture, American Multicultural Studies, and La Lingua Spaesata: Il Multilinguismo Oggi
