    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Ian Mason has been a towering presence in the now flourishing discipline of translation studies since its inception, and has produced some of the most influential and detailed analyses of translated text and interpreted interaction to date.

  • Research Methodologies in Translation Studiesby Gabriela Saldanha; Sharon O'Brien

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    As an interdisciplinary area of research, translation studies attracts students and scholars with a wide range of backgrounds, who then need to face the challenge of accounting for a complex object of enquiry that does not adapt itself well to traditional methods in other fields of investigation. This book addresses the needs of such scholars ? whether... more...

  • Complicating the History of Western Translationby Siobhán McElduff; Enrica Sciarrino

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    As long as there has been a need for language, there has been a need for translation; yet there is remarkably little scholarship available on pre-modern translation and translators. This exciting and innovative volume opens a window onto the complex world of translation in the multilingual and multicultural milieu of the ancient Mediterranean. From... more...

  • Western Translation Theory from Herodotus to Nietzscheby Douglas Robinson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Douglas Robinson offers the most comprehensive collection of translation theory readings available to date, from the Histories of Herodotus in the mid-fifth century before our era to the end of the nineteenth century. The result is a startling panoply of thinking about translation across the centuries, covering such topics as the best type of translator,... more...

  • Re-Engendering Translationby Christopher Larkosh

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    Of interest to scholars in translation studies, gender and sexuality, and comparative literary and cultural studies, this volume re-examines the possibilities for multiple intersections between translation studies and research on sexuality and gender, and in so doing addresses the persistent theoretical gaps in much work on translation and gender... more...

  • Decolonizing Translationby Kathryn Batchelor

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    The linguistically innovative aspect of Francophone African literature has been recognized and studied from a variety of angles over recent decades, yet little attention has been paid to what happens to such literature when it is translated into another language. Taking as its corpus all sub-Saharan Francophone African texts that have ever been published... more...

  • Translation in Asiaby Ronit Ricci; Jan van der Putten

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 55.00

    The field of translation studies was largely formed on the basis of modern Western notions of monolingual nations with print-literate societies and monochrome cultures. A significant number of societies in Asia ? and their translation traditions ? have diverged markedly from this model. With their often multilingual populations, and maintaining a... more...

  • Translating Others (Volume 1)by Theo Hermans

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Both in the sheer breadth and in the detail of their coverage the essays in these two volumes challenge hegemonic thinking on the subject of translation. Engaging throughout with issues of representation in a postmodern and postcolonial world, Translating Others investigates the complex processes of projection, recognition, displacement and 'othering'... more...

  • Triadic Exchangesby Ian Mason

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Dialogue interpreting is a generic term covering a diverse range of fields of interpreting which have in common the basic feature of face-to-face interaction between three parties: the interpreter and (at least) two other speakers. The interaction consists of spontaneous dialogue, involving relatively short turns at talk, in two languages. It is usually... more...

  • Method in Translation Historyby Anthony Pym

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Starting from the critical notion that we should be asking questions of contemporary importance - and that 'importance' itself must be defined - Anthony Pym sets about undoing many of the currently dominant models of translation history, positing, among much else, that the object of this history should be translators as people, that researchers are... more...
