Translation and Conflict. A Narrative Account

Mona Baker

Translation and Conflict: A Narrative Account demonstrates that translation is part of the institution of war and that translators and interpreters participate in circulating as well as resisting the narratives that create the intellectual and moral environment for violent conflict. Drawing on narrative theory and using numerous examples from historical as well as contemporary conflicts, the author provides an original and coherent model of analysis that pays equal attention to micro and macro aspects of the circulation of narratives in translation, to translation and interpreting, and to questions of dominance and resistance.

Raffaella Bertazzoli. [i]La traduzione: teorie e metodi[/i]

2006. Carrocci editore. "Le Bussole". pp. 128. ISBN 88-430-3697-1. € 9,50.

Le traduzioni svolgono un ruolo fondamentale nello sviluppo delle letterature nazionali. Già a partire dall’età classica, e lungo i secoli, molto si è discusso in relazione ai problemi e ai metodi connessi all’operazione del tradurre. Ci si è interrogati insomma non solo sul significato storico non solo delle traduzioni, sulla loro importanza nel contesto di arrivo, ma anche sui criteri metodoligici al fine di valutarne complessivamente la qualità.
Illustrando preliminarmente i concetti di traduzione e di processo traduttivo, il volume ripercorre le tappe di un dibattito complesso e attuale ed esamina le varie impostazioni teoriche, fino alle moderne metodologie dei Translations Studies.
