A Companion to Translation Studies

In a globalizing world with increasingly frequent transnational encounters, translation is fast becoming a cornerstone of our everyday lives. As a result, the study of translation has become one of the hottest new topics in international humanities programs. This text provides students with the ideal entry-point into this topical subject through a representative sample of accessible essays written by well-known scholars in the field. The contributions outline the evolution of translation studies as it transforms research and curricula throughout the humanities. Reaching out across departmental lines to students with diverse career goals, the essays reflect a variety of historical, geographic, and cultural perspectives.

Suitable for undergraduate and graduate programs alike, the commentary in this Companion is informed by fresh insights as scholars recast notions of language and culture in a post-colonial landscape rapidly shedding its Eurocentrism. This is a wide-ranging introduction to a fast-growing field that brings together some of the best recent scholarship to present its most important current themes.
