  • Translating Humourby Jeroen Vandaele

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    It is all too often assumed that humour is the very effect of a text. But humour is not a perlocutionary effect in its own right, nor is laughter. The humour of a text may be as general a characteristic as a serious text's seriousness. Like serious texts, humorous texts have many different purposes and effects. They can be subdivided into specific... more...

  • Translation in a Postcolonial Contextby Maria Tymoczko

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 59.95

    This ground-breaking analysis of the cultural trajectory of England's first colony constitutes a major contribution to postcolonial studies, offering a template relevant to most cultures emerging from colonialism. At the same time, these Irish case studies become the means of interrogating contemporary theories of translation. Moving authoritatively... more...

  • Translation and Ideologyby Sonia Cunico; Jeremy Munday

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Ideology has become increasingly central to work in translation studies. To date, however, most studies have focused on literary and religious texts, thus limiting wider understanding of how ideological clashes and encounters pervade any context where power inequalities are present.á This special edition of The Translator deliberately focuses on ideology... more...

  • The Practices of Literary Translationby Jean Boase-Beier; Michael Holman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In their introduction to this collection of essays, the editors argue that constraints can be seen as a source of literary creativity, and given that translation is even more constrained than 'original' literary production, it thus has the potential to be even more creative too. The ten essays that follow outline ways in which translators and translations... more...

  • Traductioby Dirk Delabastita

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 61.95

    Nothing like wordplay can make difference between languages look so uncompromising, can give such a sharp edge to the dilemma between forms and effects, can so blur the line between translation and adaptation, or can cast such harsh light on our illusion of complete semantic stability. In the pun the whole language system may resonate, and so may... more...

  • The Return to Ethicsby Anthony Pym

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 42.95

    If civilizations are to cooperate as well as clash, our mediators must solve problems using serious thought about relations between Self and Other. á Translation Studies has thus returned to questions of ethics. But this is no return to any prescriptive linguistics of equivalence. As the articles in this volume show, ethics is now a broadly contextual... more...

  • Wordplay and Translationby Dirk Delabastita

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Extended Special Issue Spik in Glyph? Translation, Wordplay and Resistance in Chicano Poetry, pp 141-160 Tace Hedrick (Comparative Literature, Penn State Harrisburg, USA)This paper examines the nature of contemporary bilingual Chicano poetry from the 1970s to the present, particularly in terms of the poetic use of bilingual wordplay and the questions... more...

  • Translation and Minorityby Lawrence Venuti

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The premise of this volume is a question: What can the concept of minority bring to the practice and study of translation? Minority is understood here to mean a cultural or political position that is subordinate, whether the social context that so defines it is local, national or global. This position is occupied by languages and literatures that... more...

  • The Pushing-Hands of Translation and its Theoryby Douglas Robinson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book presents an East-West dialogue of leading translation scholars responding to and developing Martha Cheung?s "pushing-hands" method of translation studies. Pushing-hands was an idea Martha began exploring in the last four years of her life, and only had time to publish at article length in 2012. The concept of pushing-hands suggests a promising... more...

  • Cosmopolitanism and Translationby Esperanca Bielsa

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 43.95

    Social theories of the new cosmopolitanism have called attention to the central importance of translation, in areas such as global democracy, human rights and social movements, but translation studies has not engaged systematically with theories of cosmopolitanism. In Cosmopolitanism and Translation , Esperanša Bielsa does just that by focussing... more...
