Title: Translating Emotion
Subtitle: Studies in Transformation and Renewal Between Languages
Edited By: Kathleen Shields
Michael Clarke
Description:

This collection of essays can be situated in a development that has been
underway in translation studies since the early 1990s, namely the
increasing focus on translators themselves: translators as embodied agents,
not as instruments or conduits. The volume deals with different kinds of
emotion and different levels of the translation process. For example, one
essay examines the broad socio-cultural context, and others focus on the
social event enacted in translation, or on the translator's own
performative act. Some of the essays also problematize the linguistic
challenges posed by the cultural distance of the emotions embodied in the
texts to be translated.

The collection is broad in scope, spanning a variety of languages, cultures
and periods, as well as different media and genres. The essays bring
diverse questions to a topic rarely directly addressed and map out
important areas of enquiry: the translator as an emotional cultural
intermediary, the importance of emotion to cognitive meaning, the place of
emotion in linguistic reception, and translation itself as a trope whereby
emotion can be expressed.
