Post-colonial Translation
This outstanding collection brings together eminent contributors toexamine some crucial interconnections between post-colonial theoryand translation studies.As English becomes an increasingly global language, so more peoplebecome multilingual and translation becomes a crucial communicativeactivity. Whereas traditional thinking about translation saw it as a poorcopy of an original, today translation is viewed as an act of inventionthat produces a new original in another language. The essays in thisbook, by contributors from Britain, the US, Brazil, India and Canada,explore new perspectives on translation in relation to post-colonialsocieties. The essay topics include: links between centre and margins inthe intellectual domain; shifts in translation practice from colonial topost-colonial societies; translation and power relations among Indianlanguages; Brazilian cannibalistic theories of literary transfer.Examining the relationships between language and power acrosscultural boundaries, this collection reveals the vital role of translationin redefining the meanings of cultural and ethnic identity.
