Heriberto Yepez is a native of Tijuana, Baja California. He teaches philosophy at the Autonomous University of Baja California (AUBC) and his poetry, as well as his critical and theoretical writings, shows the influence of his philosophical interests, his interest in information systems, and his engagements with cultural clash, as well as cultural theory. Already the accomplished author of several books in Spanish, his English work has appeared in journals such as Chain, Tripwire, Shark, and XCP. In his most recent project, Here is Tijuana!, which is due to be published this year in England, Yepez has collaborated with an anthropologist (Fiamma Montezemolo) and an architect (Rene Peralta) to explore and document the ever-changing and often fraught socio-cultural forms of the city. HisBabellebab: Non-Poetry on the End of Translation was published in the U.S. by Duration Press in 2003.
