This collection brings together an impressive line-up of top scholars in Translation Studies. From the clear-headed erudition of its opening essay on literary self-translation to the polemical discussion of community-forming myths in Translation Studies in the final chapter, the book not only illustrates the nexus between translation, cross-cultural communication and cultural identities but also engages with current research models for studying these phenomena, critically reviewing methodologies and proposing new research avenues. This stimulating and often challenging volume is without a doubt a worthy companion to New Trends in Translation and Cultural Identity! --Dirk Delabastita, University of Namur and CETRA, Belgium
The collective volume Translation and Cultural Identity: Selected Essays on Translation and Cross-Cultural Communication has, in my opinion, at least two major strengths. Firstly it gathers together the opinions of some of the most outstanding scholars, both international and national, in the field of Translation Studies. And secondly, thanks to this diversity of focus, it covers facets of these Studies that range from general overviews to very specific case studies, thus offering one of the most interesting state-of-the-art accounts of Translation Studies today. I have no doubt that this collection of essays will become essential and enlightening reading for all those interested in this matter, and a work of reference in their research and teaching activities. --José Miguel Santamaría, University of the Basque Country, Spain
