Abstract:

Gendered and sexual identities are unstable constructions which reveal a
great deal about the ideologies and power relationships affecting
individuals and societies. The interaction between gender/sex studies and
translation studies points to a fascinating arena of discursive conflict in
which our intimate desires and identities are established or rejected,
(re)negotiated or censored, sanctioned or tabooed.

This volume explores diverse and heterogeneous aspects of the manipulation
of gendered and sexual identities. Contributors examine translation as a
feminist practice and/or theory; the importance of gender-related context
in translation; the creation of a female image of secondariness through
dubbing and state censorship; attempts to suppress the blatantly
patriarchal and sexist references in the German dubbed versions of James
Bond films; the construction of national heroism and national identity as
male preserve; the enactment of Chamberlain's 'gender metaphorics' in
Scliar and Calvino; the transformation of Japanese romance fiction through
Harlequin translations; the translation of the erotic as a site for testing
the complex rewriting(s) of identity in sociohistorical terms; and the
emergence of NRTs (New Reproductive Technologies), which is causing
fundamental changes in the perception of 'creativity' or 'procreation' as
male domains.
