    About the AuthorSarah Maitland is Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
    Author 1Sarah Maitland
    Book DescriptionWhat Is Cultural Translation? In this book, Sarah Maitland uncovers processes of negotiation and adaptation closely associated with the translation of languages behind the cultural phenomena of everyday life. For globalized societies confronted increasingly with the presence of difference in all its forms, translation has become both a metaphor for thoughtful encounter and a touchstone act for what we see, do and say, and who we are. Drawing on examples from across cultural domains (theatre, film, TV and literature) this work illuminates the elusive concept of 'cultural translation'. Focusing on the built environment, current affairs, international relations and online media, this book arrives at a view of translation in its broadest sense. It is a means for decoding how we shape the cultural realm and serves as a vehicle for new ways of seeing and being that question the received ideas that structure the communities in which we live. Written in a clear and engaging style, this is the first book-length study of cultural translation. It builds a powerful case for expanding the remit of translation to cover the experience of living and working in a globalized, multicultural world, and is of interest to all involved in the academic study of representation and contestation in contemporary cultural practice.
    Editorial ReviewA timely work ... The illustrations Maitland uses to bolster her arguments, from memes to Greek mythology and Star Trek, serve to make her arguments more accessible to those approaching the subject from outside of translation studies ... This book ought to be of interest to all translation scholars, as well as researchers in other fields seeking a reliable perspective on cultural translation and wishing to apply it to their own research. * New Voices in Translation Studies * I have been waiting for this book. Not only does it grapple with one of the most vexing questions in translation studies - what is cultural translation? - but it asks us to imagine new ways to engage with people unlike ourselves in an age where we are defined by the borders we cross. Sarah Maitland recognizes the limits of translation's utopian dream, but she asks us to strive toward that dream nonetheless. -- Kyle Conway, Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication, University of Ottawa, Canda
