Description

With contributions by researchers from India, Europe, North America and the Caribbean, this volume touches on a variety of topics-including copyright, cultural hybridity, globalization, identity construction, minority languages, questions which are of interest not only for the disciplinary development of translation studies but for comparative literature, cultural studies and world literature as well.

In Translation provides a place for new voices to be heard alongside those of well-established scholars and for current concerns to express themselves, often taking as their points of departure practices in areas of the world other than Europe or North America, which have until now tended to dominate the field.

At some point between the prospective call by James Holmes in 1972 advocating translation studies as a legitimate field of research and the founding in 1987 of the first national association (the Canadian Association of Translation Studies), translation studies gained recognition as a discipline in its own right. Along with this recognition came various forms of institutionalization: new journals and associations, international conferences in greater and greater numbers, graduate programs in translation studies, etc.

More recently, however, and this is perhaps a result of the process of maturation, questions have arisen relating on the one hand to the disciplinary status of translation studies and on the other to its origins. The two are interconnected, the first pointing to the dependence of translation studies on other disciplines and the second questioning the generality of its concepts.
