The Borges Center, the most important site for work on the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), moved from the University of Aarhus (Denmark) to the University of Iowa in 2005, and has now moved to the University of Pittsburgh, where its director, Daniel Balderston, has been Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Languages since 2008.
