Abstract:

Translation Studies has been defined in terms of spatial metaphors
stressing the need for disciplinary border crossings, with the purpose of
borrowing different approaches, orientations and tools from diverse
academic fields. Such territorial incursions have resulted in a more
thorough exploration of the home province, as this volume is designed to
show. The interdisciplinary nature of the venture arises out of the
multiplicity of terrains involved and the theoretically motivated
definition of the object itself. Translation has been perceived as
communication in context, hence the study of translated texts as facts of
target cultures means that they need to be investigated within particular
situational and sociocultural environments, an enterprise which necessarily
requires the collaboration of various disciplines.This volume has grown out
of a conference held at the University of Lisbon in November 2002 and
collects a selection of papers that focus: on the crossdisciplinarity of
Translation Studies, offering new perspectives on the current space of
translation; on the importation and redefinition of theories, methodologies
and concepts for the study of translation; and on the complex interplay of
text and context in translation, creating dynamic interfaces with
Sociology, Literary Theory, Cultural Studies, Discourse Analysis, Cultural
History, among other disciplines.
