Abstract:

The essays of this volume reflect the tremendous semantic extension the
term 'translation' has experienced in the recent debates, which have
transformed it into a key term in current issues about language, literature and
culture. In the wake of the culture concepts of the 1980s, translation has
emerged as the central analytical term for the contact of cultures, while
the poststructuralist idea of the infinite chain of the signification
process has helped to establish it as a dynamic model. In the course of
recent research developments, the issues discussed in an ever-widening
field of translation studies began to interconnect with issues discussed in
equally topical and newly-established research areas of postcolonial
studies and questions of 'World Englishes' and their lively cultural and
literary exchanges. The essays of this volume take up and develop this
general premise of a close interrelationship in processes of translation
between language and culture, and the resulting linkage in the study of
these processes between research in language and translation studies, on
the one hand, and cultural and literary studies, on the other. The thematic
scope stretches across the entire spectrum from issues in translations from
one language and culture to another, through problems of and new avenues
for cultural interchange as presented in works of art, to questions of
translation theory and intercultural exchange on the most general level.
