She has published eleven books of Greek literature in translation and her academic work has appeared in journals such as Comparative Literature, Arion, Translation Studies, and the Journal of Modern Greek Studies.

Reviews

"Emmerich's engaging essays demonstrate how editorial choices help construct texts as monuments: allegedly permanent, enduring artifacts that demand preservation and honor, not interpretation or discussion about their fraught histories as oral texts or written documents." - Public Books

"Literary Translation and the Making of Originals should be essential reading for literary translators, translation scholars, and professors, especially those who teach literary translation. It will also be of interest to devotees of translated literature." - World Literature Today
