  • 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...

  • 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...

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...

  • Translation and Geographyby Federico Italiano

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 43.95
