Gender and Translation: Understanding Agents in Transnational Reception

Contemporary research in Translation Studies highlights the fundamental role gender plays in translation and transnational reception. This volume brings fresh insights to this rich field of inquiry by examining how gender impacts concretely on the real-world agents who participate in selecting, translating, editing, promoting, or reviewing specific texts. Contributors explore the Anglo-American or French reception of Swedish women writers (Flygare-Carlén, Bremer, Lagerlöf), Beauvoir in Norwegian, Austen in Spanish, feminism at the Norwegian publisher Pax, Swedish and Norwegian translations of ancient Greek and Roman texts and Belgian translations of Anglophone nurse war memoirs. By delving into such multi-layered topics, they show how gender can interact in complex, even contradictory, ways with authorship, copyright law, ideology, editorial policy, censorship, and public culture.
