Michelle Clayton is Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies and Comparative Literature at Brown University, where she also holds a graduate field appointment in Theater and Performance Studies. Her work focuses on modern and contemporary Latin American and Western European writing and culture, spanning poetry, prose, dance, and the visual arts, with a particular interest in avant-garde aesthetics. She is the author of Poetry in Pieces: César Vallejo and Lyric Modernity (2011), the first major English-language study of Vallejo’s work in thirty years, and is currently working on a second book-length project, Moving Bodies of the Avant-Garde, which explores forms of cultural circulation –across languages, across media, and across regions—in the early decades of the twentieth century.
