Woman and Translation

Luise von Flotow - University of Ottawa

This volume is an attempt to open up a space for reflection on the complex
intersections between women and translation-- two categories which over the
last two or three decades have revealed to be complex and unstable
constructions, rich in linguistic, cultural and ideological associations. A
wealth of disciplines, some of them very recent, are enlarging the
analytical and research horizons-- among them we can mention gender and
sex(uality) studies, feminism, pragmatics, cultural studies, postmodernist
perspectives, deconstruction, psychoanalysis, feminist translation,
descriptive translation studies, and many more.

As a result of this richness of perspectives, the intersection between
women and translation has grown exponentially, allowing a variety of lines
of research unthought of just a few years ago, when both 'woman' and
'translation' were no more than marginal categories in language and culture.

The papers for this issue should focus on one of the following topics,
among others:
* The translation of works written by women.
* Works translated by women, no matter the genre.
* The task and work of 'translators' vs. 'translatresses'
* Feminist translation
* The metaphors linking women and translation: a review of traditional
metaphors; new metaphors.
* The translation of sex and the (female) body.
* The translation of margins-- whether social, sexual or personal-- and of
* The presence of sexist traits in any translation.
* Women, translation and new literary/translatological canons.

We especially wish to invite papers which encourage:

(1) Cross-disciplinary perspectives.
(2) Challenging proposals, with a focus on political or ideological issues.
(3) Practical analyses of translations; but also
(4) A revaluation of the basic theoretical tenets linking 'woman' and

We also invite 2,000-word reviews of any book related to translation, most
especially those dealing with gender and translation.
