Translation Studies has recently been searching for connections with
Cultural Studies and Sociology. This volume brings together a range of ways
in which the disciplines can be related, particularly with respect to research
methodologies. The key aspects covered are the agents behind translation,
the social histories revealed by translations, the perceived roles and values
of translators in social contexts, the hidden power relations structuring
publication contexts, and the need to review basic concepts of the way
social and cultural systems work. Special importance is placed on
Community Interpreting as a field of social complexity, the lessons of which
can be applied in many other areas.

The volume studies translators and interpreters working in a wide range of
contexts, ranging from censorship in East Germany to English translations in
Gujarat. Major contributions are made by Agnès Whitfield, Daniel Gagnon,
Franz Pöchhacker, Michaela Wolf, Pekka Kujamäki and Rita Kothari, with an
extensive introduction on methodology by Anthony Pym.
