Remy Attig is a PhD candidate in Spanish at the University of Ottawa. His research focuses on the English translation of Spanish vernaculars published in the diaspora, more specifically the modern Judeo-Spanish texts of Matilda Koén-Sarano and the Spanglish chronicles of Susana Chávez-Silverman. In his thesis, Remy focuses on experimental translation that resists domestication of the texts through a variety of English-language literary and linguistic devices. This translation approach is informed by the intersections of language, sociolinguistics, power, resistance, and identity.

He is currently preparing a book project to explore the emergence of transnational costumbrismo in the literature of several borderland populations.

In addition, Remy is interested in the role of translation in empowering or disenfranchising immigrant populations in social movements.
