Book Information

   

Title: Applying Luhmann to Translation Studies
Subtitle: Translation in Society
Written By: Sergey Tyulenev
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415892308/
Series Title: Routledge Advances in Translation Studies
Description:

This book deals with one of the most prominent and promising developments in
modern Translation Studies--the sociology of translation. Tyulenev develops an
original way of applying Luhmann's Social Systems Theory to translation,
viewing translation as a social-systemic boundary phenomenon. The book
consists of two major parts: in the first, translation is described as a system in
its own right with its systemic properties; in the second part, translation is
viewed as a social subsystem and as a boundary phenomenon in the overall
social system.
