TRANSLATION AND NATION
A Cultural Politics of Englishness

Edited by Roger Ellis and Liz Oakley-Brown 

(Cardiff University)
 

KEY FEATURES
- Fills a gap in which there are few publications which focus on the
 construction of Englishness through vernacular translations
- Suggest ways of looking at the questioning of the English subject
 through texts that engage with translation in differing ways
- Use of vernacular texts has signifiance in terms of identity,
 represetation and subjectivity

DESCRIPTION
In recent years the marginal position which has defined translators
and their texts has come under increasing and sustained
challenge. However, although translation and subjectivity has been
thoroughly considered in terms of post-colonialism and
post-structuralism, there are few discussions which focus specifically
on the construction of 'Englishness' through vernacular
translation. Using a range of theoretical approaches the five essays
in this volume aim to realise such an understanding of translation by
critically analysing the cultural and political implications of
translation and the construction of English subjectivities at
particular historical moments.
