About this item
This volume presents fresh approaches to the role that translation - in its many forms - plays in enabling and mediating global cultural exchange. As modes of communication and textual production continue to evolve, the field of translation studies has an increasingly important role in exploring the ways in which words, sounds and images are translated and reinterpreted in new soc io-cultural contexts. The book includes an innovative mix of literary, cultural and inter semiotic perspectives and represents a wide range of languages and cultures.
The contributions are all linked by a shared focus on the place of translation in the contemporary world, and the ways in which translation, and the discipline of translation studies, can she'd light on questions of inter- and hyper textuality, multimodality and new media in contemporary cultural production.
