CFP. Translating the Middle East:Collection of Essays 11/30/2007
Contributions are invited for a collection of scholarly articles examining
the politics of translating the Middle East cultures. Papers can address a
number of questions such as: What are the overall politics of translation
between the Middle Eastern cultures as well as those cultures and the
West? In what ways are these cultures represented through translation?
What other theoretical frameworks can assist in the understanding of the
process of translation? In what ways the linguistic barriers impact
translation within the Middle East? What is the role of such issues as
gender, sexuality, class in the process of selection for translation and
representation? In what ways are the politics of reception and translation
related? What is the process and the determinant factors for selecting the
works to be translated? What role does the market play in this context?
What is the impact of cyber-space, and in general new technical modes of
communication, for translation?
