Gabriel Losada Pérez was born in Barcelona and grew up in Andorra. His fascination with East Asia and Chinese language, culture and translation brought him back to Barcelona, where he graduated from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona with a Bachelor’s degree in Translation and Interpreting, with Catalan, Spanish, French, English and Chinese as his working languages. Gabriel was also fortunate to study at Peking University as an exchange student, and during his final year at university he has continued focusing on his studies in Chinese language while working with a local research group and as a Chinese-Spanish translator at the Foundation Confucius Institute of Barcelona. In his free time, Gabriel runs De Camino a Pekín, a blog focused on China and its language and culture. At Yenching Academy, Gabriel concentrates in Literature and Culture and focuses on Chinese literature and poetry, translation and intercultural communication, while he continues doing research on migrant worker poetry on China, an issue he has already started doing research on in his undergraduate thesis through an interdisciplinary lens.
Alicia Rodríguez Alabarceread bio
Alicia Rodríguez Alabarce is a Spanish student who graduated from the University of Granada with a degree in Translation and Interpretation. At the early age of 19, she received the opportunity to pursue a course on Translation for Publishers and Linguistic Correction by the International University Menéndez Pelayo. This opportunity introduced her into the professional environment of translation and interpretation, which she has the pleasure of sharing with experienced translators and linguists. She received an Erasmus+ grant to study at Newcastle University, which helped her broaden her knowledge on cultural studies and translation concerning her four working languages, namely Spanish, English, Chinese and French. The fact that she is a highly demanding and dilligent person is proven due to her commitment to combine both studying and working as a Chinese and English teacher at the Spanish company C.L. Granada. However, her real passion is Chinese culture and literature. This is what drove her to translate some of the popular tales of Liao Zhai by Pu Songling into Spanish as her dissertation. Since she stumbled upon the Classics of the Chinese literature, she has been determined to devote her future research to the development of the Chinese literature. By focusing on Literature and Culture throughout her academic experience at Yenching Academy, she aims to spread the distinctive Chinese literature among the Spanish speaking audience.
