Translating (in) the Arab World

Edited by: Sameh Fekry Hanna, University College London

A new collection of essays to be published by St. Jerome.

The study of translation and interpreting has been Euro-centric since its inception (Bassnett and Lefevere 1998:138; Baker 1998:277-78). With the publication of John Benjamins’ Translators through History in 1995 and the Routledge Encyclopedia of Translation Studies in 1998, the latter including a large section on translation in a wide range of traditions, many scholars both within and outside the Western sphere began to engage with scholarly work on translation and interpreting written from the perspective of the West’s many ‘others’ (Nair 2002; Chan 2004; Faiq 2004; Hung and Wakabayashi 2005; Hermans 2006, Cheung 2006).
