Contemporary translation theories

Edwin Gentzler

Contemporary Translation Theories traces the growth of translation theory from its traditional roots through the recent proliferation of theories, fueled by research in feminism, poststructural, and postcolonial investigations. Edwin Gentzler examines five new approaches -- the translation workshop, the science of translation, translation studies, polysystem theory, and deconstruction -- all of which began in the mid-1960s and continue to be influential today. In this critical overview, he explores the strengths and weaknesses of each method, tracing the connections among the different schools of thought. Illustrating the importance of translation theory to the current debates in cultural studies, Gentzler raises important theoretical questions challenging assumptions of the leading translation theories.
