In recent years, scholarship on translation has moved well beyond the technicalities of converting one language into another and beyond conventional translation theory. With new technologies blurring distinctions between qthe originalq and its reproductions, and with globalization redefining national and cultural boundaries, qtranslationq is now emerging as a reformulated subject of lively, interdisciplinary debate. Nation, Language, and the Ethics of Translation enters the heart of this debate. It covers an exceptional range of topics, from simultaneous translation to legal theory, from the language of exile to the language of new nations, from the press to the cinema; and cultures and languages from contemporary Bengal to ancient Japan, from translations of Homer to the work of Don DeLillo. All twenty-two essays, by leading voices including Gayatri Spivak and the late Edward Said, are provocative and persuasive. The book's four sections--qTranslation as Medium and across Media, q qThe Ethics of Translation, q qTranslation and Difference, q and qBeyond the Nationq--together provide a comprehensive view of current thinking on nationality and translation, one that will be widely consulted for years to come.
