Title: Translation and Identity in the Americas
Subtitle: New Directions in Translation Theory
Written By: Edwin Gentzler
URL: http://www.routledgelanguages.com/books/Translation-and-Identity-in-the-Americas-isbn9780415774529
Description:

Building on research from disciplines including cultural studies,
linguistics, feminism and ethnic studies and including case studies from
Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean, this book shows that translation is one
of the primary means by which a culture is constructed.

Using a variety of texts and addressing minority and oppressed groups
within cultures, Translation and the Americas highlights by example the
cultural role translation policies play in a discriminatory process: the
consequences of which can be social marginalization, loss of identity and
psychological trauma.
