Chloe Yale Pinto, ISGAP Visiting Scholar in Critical Antisemitism Studies, Discrimination and Human Rights at the Woolf Institute. Her work investigates the interplay between textual antisemitism and literary theory, researching how the plasticity of anti-Jewish prejudice informs and infects the meaning of words.
She is a PhD candidate in the English Faculty at the University of Cambridge, having previously completed the MSt in Literature (1900-Present) at the University of Oxford. Her current research focuses on the relationship between artwork and antisemitism in Ezra Pound’s work and thought, and lies at the intersection between the politics of exclusion and the interaction between text, ideology and image. Her overall critical focus is the interplay between visual culture and violence, and she has written on Pound’s late cantos, 1990s American prison literature, and the trickiness of archives. She is a current co-convenor of Cambridge’s Theory, Criticism and Culture seminar series, and supervises undergraduate and postgraduate work on poetry, film and literary theory.
