Ana Candida Carneiro (Ph.D.) is an award-winning and published Brazilian-Italian playwright, translator, educator, and scholar. She grew up in Brazil and lived fifteen years in Italy, before immigrating to the USA in 2015. Her work has been presented in Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Finland, Monaco, South Africa, and in the USA, in theaters such as the Piccolo Teatro and the National Theatre of Nice. She has been supported by institutions such as the Royal Court Theater, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, MacDowell, and Yaddo. Her plays touch on themes of social justice, globalization, immigration, climate change, and culture clash, using multiple and invented languages, heterogeneous linguistic registers and genres, and are increasingly marked by experimentation with the dramatic form. She writes in English, Italian, and Portuguese. As founder and artistic director of the Babel Theater Project (www.babeltheate.org), Ana also directs and produces work that aims to generate lasting social and aesthetic change at the crossroads of languages, cultures and disciplines. With her husband, urban planner Brian English, she co-founded Babel (www.babelcities.org), a global non-profit that works at the intersection of art, social justice, and well-being. As a scholar, Ana has contributed to Routledge edited volumes focusing on Theatre & Migration, Latinx Theater, and Theatre and Racial Justice. She is currently writing The Global Playwriting Workbook (Methuen Drama, forthcoming 2023). Before joining IU Bloomington, she taught at Boston College, Amherst College, and the MIT.
