Translation, Power, and Post-Translation Studies
Speaker: Edwin  Gentzler, University of Massachusetts Amherst


This paper follows those scholars who have taken the power turn, arguing that translations negotiate among various power groups, the results of which have societal repercussions. After a review of the research at the University of Massachusetts Amherst published in Translation and Power (UMass Press, 2002), Translation, Resistance, and Activism (UMass Press, 2010), it connects to my new book Translation and Rewriting in the Age of Post-Translation Studies (forthcoming, Routledge, 2016).

Edwin Gentzler is a Professor of Translation Studies and Director of Comparative Literature at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He is the author of Translation and Identity Formation in the Americas (Routledge 2008) and Contemporary Translation Theories (Multilingual Matters, 2001). His new book Translation and Rewriting in the Age of Post-Translation is forthcoming with
