9780415383950: Translation and Conflict: A Narrative Account

Translation and Conflict demonstrates that translators and interpreters participate in circulating as well as resisting the narratives that create the intellectual and moral environment for violent conflict. Drawing on narrative theory and using numerous examples from historical and contemporary conflicts, the author provides an original and coherent model of analysis that pays equal attention to micro and macro aspects of the circulation of narratives in translation, to translation and interpreting, and to questions of dominance and resistance.

The study is particularly significant at this juncture of history, with the increased interest in the positioning of translators in politically sensitive contexts, the growing concern with translators’ and interpreters’ divided loyalties in settings such as Guantanamo, Iraq, Kosovo, and other arenas of conflict, and the emergence of several activist communities of translators and interpreters with highly politicized agendas of their own, including Babels, Translators for Peace, Tlaxcala and ECOS.

Including further reading suggestions at the end of each chapter, Translation and Conflict will be of interest to students of translation, intercultural studies and sociology as well as the reader interested in the study of social and political movements.

Review:

'... a compelling account and an intellectually honest enquiry into the issues involved in handling competing narratives, of vital interest not only to translators and translation theorists but also to users of translation products.' - Ian Mason, Heriot Watt University, UK

'Translation and Conflict undoubtedly constitutes a turning point in Translation Studies.' - África Vidal Claramnote, University of Salamanca, Spain

'Perceptive, provocative and always engaging, .... a timely investigation into a hidden realm of translation practice where the stakes – human, political and international – are growing ever higher.' - David Johnston, Queen’s University Belfast, UK

'Conclusively, this interdisciplinary publication complete with a practical and clearly-written glossary is perfectly illustrated by lively, interesting and telling contemporary examples throughout, which not only help the reader understand the main points put into practice but, at the same time, serve as a many-faceted backdrop to the soulful conflicts and instances of political aggression currently interweaving the texture of our global planet.' - Károli Gáspár University of Hungarian Reformed Church
