The European Thematic Network Acume 2 «Interfacing Sciences, Literature and
Humanities: an Interdisciplinary Approach» discussed translation theory and
practice through an interdisciplinary approach at an international
conference held at the University of Calabria in 2009. The contributors of
this collection propose different voices on the theory and practice of
translation as an act of communication across linguistic and cultural
barriers where the translator's role is central. The volume explores
current theoretical perspectives on gender and translation, focuses on the
debate on gender and language, investigates some examples of
translatresses' work and proposes practices of translation by women,
analysing the complexities in translating «transgender» characters in
fiction and the representation of gender roles in cinematographic
adaptations of novels. Highlighting the «double difference» of the
translatress, the collection offers a textual tapestry on translation that
invites women/readers to question once again the act of translation.
