We are pleased to invite translation scholars and researchers worldwide to contribute research papers to an edited volume, provisionally titled

'The Politics of Translation'

This current volume aims at addressing such topics as ideology, power, discourse, identity and representation; therefore, it welcomes submissions involving different language combinations and from a wide range of sociopolitical, cultural and institutional contexts. Potential submissions can be from various theoretical perspectives and draw on different methodological approaches.

Some of the relevant topics might include but are not limited to the following (theoretical insights and methodologies):

- Translation/interpreting and (critical) discourse analysis
- Translation/interpreting and narrative theory
- Translation/interpreting and systemic functional linguistics
- Translation/interpreting and ideology
- Translation/interpreting and framings
- Translation/interpreting and power relations
- Corpus-based critical discourse analysis

The proposed volume will be considered for publication as an edited volume in ‘New Tends in Translation Studies’ to be published by Peter Lang (Oxford).
Interested contributors are requested to submit to the volume editors: Ali Almanna and Juliane House a title, abstract and a brief bio sketch of author/s at the earliest (latest by 30 April 2021).

Once accepted by editors, the first draft of the chapter (approx. 6000 words) will be due by 1 July 2021. These chapters will be then peer-reviewed before submitting to the publisher. The volume will be published in February, 2022.
