Crosscultural Transgressions offers explorations and critical
assessments of research methods and models in translation studies, and
points up new questions and directions.

Ranging from epistemological questions of description and
historiography to the politics of language, including the language of
translation research, the book tackles issues of research design and
methodology, and goes on to examine the kind of disciplinary knowledge
produced in translation studies, who produces it, and whose interests
the dominant paradigms serve.

The focus is on historical and ideological problems, but the crisis of
representation that has affected all the human sciences in recent
decades has left its mark. As the essays in this collection explore
the transgressive nature of crosscultural representation, whether in
translations or in the study of translation, they remain attentive to
institutional contexts and develop a self-reflexive stance.

They also chart new territory, taking their cue from ethnography,
semiotics, sociology and cultural studies, and tackling Meso-American
iconic scripts, Bourdieu's constructivism, translation between
philosophical paradigms, and the complexities of translation concepts
in multicultural societies.
