Culture and News Translation
Editor: Dr. Kyle Conway, University of North Dakota, USA
This special issue will examine the role of culture in news translation.
Interest in news translation, for the most part, is a relatively recent phenomenon. It benefited from the sustained attention it received during the Translation in Global News initiative at the University of Warwick from 2004-2007, although occasional articles on the topic have appeared since the 1970s. In those early articles, scholars were concerned with how political relations between countries affected which stories traveled where. Scholars writing more recently have been more interested in how journalists' institutional roles within a news organization shape how they construct their stories. In both cases, however, the analysis has been largely structural, concerned with newsroom organization and the political economy of news.
