About this item
This book analyzes a variety of topics and current issues in Translation Studies, examining three major aspects. Firstly, it explores translation and migration and the tensions between conflicting linguistic and cultural identities among people who migrate. Secondly, it studies the impact of language policies and translation initiatives in the context of minority languages and multiculturalism. Thirdly, the book analyzes a variety of texts that cross cultural borders (i.e. Italian-Canadian, Albanian-Austrian, Basque-German, German-Serbian/Croatian, Hungarian-French, French-Turoyo, English-Greek, Crimean Greek-Ukrainian, Polish-English/Spanish), focusing in particular on the transformations these texts undergo in the course of the translation process. The book offers a valuable resource for researchers in the field of translation studies, lecturers teaching translation at the university level, and postgraduate students in translation studies. Further, it will certainly benefit researchers in migration studies, linguistics, literary and cultural studies who are interested in learning how translation studies relates to other disciplines.
