Chloe Hill’s research examines the relationship between globalization and literary production through the Brazilian novel of the twenty-first century. She is particularly interested in how narrative informs global configurations of power, knowledge, and migratory experiences.

Hill is also a translator of Brazilian literature. Her 2017 translation of Myriam Fraga’s Purificações ou O sinal de talião won the Cliff Becker Prize for Poetry in Translation. She is currently working on a translation of Antônio Xerxenesky’s F (2014), a novel about a Brazilian hitwoman and Orson Welles.
