Title: The Turns of Translation Studies
Subtitle: New paradigms or shifting viewpoints?
Written By: Mary Snell-Hornby
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 66

What's new in Translation Studies? In offering a critical assessment of
recent developments in the young discipline, this book sets out to provide
an answer, as seen from a European perspective today. Many "new" ideas
actually go back well into the past, and the German Romantic Age proves to
be the starting-point. The main focus lies however on the last 20 years,
and, beginning with the cultural turn of the 1980s, the study traces what
have turned out since then to be ground-breaking contributions (new
paradigms) as against what was only a change in position on already
established territory (shifting viewpoints). Topics of the 1990s include
nonverbal communication, gender-based Translation Studies, stage
translation, new fields of interpreting studies and the effects of new
technologies and globalization (including the increasingly dominant role of
English). The author's aim is to stimulate discussion and provoke further
debate on the current profile and future perspectives of Translation Studies.
