Karina Lickorish Quinn is a Peruvian-British writer. Her short stories and translations have been published in various literary journals including The Offing, Asymptote, Question Journal and The White Review Online. In 2019, her work will be featured in the first anthology of British-Latinx writers (Flipped Eye). Karina writes in English, Spanish, and Spanglish and is excited by writing that erases linguistic boundaries. Karina is also completing her PhD in Creative Writing at Queen Mary University of London and editing a novel about ghosts, urban saints, and the counterhistories of Peru.
Karina’s research interests include women and women’s bodies; magic realism and surrealism; spectres and spectrality; transnationalism and migration; multilingual writing and translanguaging; memory and countermemory; the indigenisation of the Europhone novel; and post-conflict literature, especially novels which engage with and interrogate processes of transitional justice in post-conflict contexts.
