Title: Text and Context
Subtitle: Essays on Translation and Interpreting in Honour of Ian Mason
Edited By: Mona Baker
URL: http://www.stjerome.co.uk/books/b/72/
Description:

Ian Mason has been a towering presence in the now flourishing discipline of
translation studies since its inception, and has produced some of the most
influential and detailed analyses of translated text and interpreted
interaction to date. The sophistication, dynamism and inclusiveness that
have characterized his approach to all forms of mediation are the hallmarks
of his legacy.

Text and Context celebrates Ian Mason's scholarship by bringing together
fourteen innovative and original pieces of research by both young and
established scholars, who examine different forms of translation and
interpreting in a variety of cultural and geographical settings. In line
with his own inclusive approach to the field, these contributions combine
close textual analysis with keen attention to issues of power, modes of
socialization, institutional culture, individual agency and ethical
accountability. While paying tribute to one of the most innovative and
influential scholars in the field, the volume offers novel insights into a
variety of genres and practices and charts important new directions for the
discipline.
