Ms Sara Borda Green
Graduate Teaching Assistant in Spanish (Welsh Medium)
I am originally from Trevelin, Argentina, and I completed a BA in Communication Sciences with a Public Policies and Communication Planning orientation in the School of Social Sciences, University of Buenos Aires (UBA). Before graduating, I also worked as a Digital Media Teaching Assistant and Researcher with fellow students and staff. After graduating I moved back to Patagonia where I taught Spanish, English, Welsh, and creative writing for young people, and co-coordinated a local secondary school radio station. In 2016–2017 I completed an MA in Welsh and Celtic Studies in Cardiff University, where I explored the construction of spatiality in contemporary Welsh short stories written by female authors. I also looked into R. Bryn Williams’ fiction and poetry and its strong relationship with current representations of Patagonia in Wales. The dissertation combined my interest in contemporary Welsh literature with my media studies background. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Modern Languages in the School of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics at Bangor University. My project, under the supervision of Dr. David Miranda-Barreiro and Prof. Gerwyn Williams, focuses on representations of Patagonia in the Welsh culture. Besides the academic work, over the last years I have developed an interest in creative writing in Welsh, and I have won three bardic chairs and one gwobr telyn in the three main Eisteddfods in Patagonia.
Welsh literature, Welsh culture in Patagonia, contemporary Argentine and Latin American literature, media studies, digital media and society, cultural studies, social geography, gender studies, creative writing in Spanish and Welsh.
For my BA dissertation I studied Orsai, an Argentine literary magazine (2010-2014, 2017-) that combined traditional and innovative publishing practices and created an analogical and digital universe of experiences for its readers.
My MA dissertation followed my BA work by focusing on an analysis of the Welsh literary magazines O’r Pedwar Gwynt and Y Stamp, which combine print and online publications.
