Abstract:

Postcolonial Polysystems: The Production and Reception of Translated
Children’s Literature in South Africa is an original and provocative
contribution to the field of children’s literature research and translation
studies. It draws on a variety of methodologies to provide a perspective, both
product- and process-oriented, on the ways in which translation contributes to
the production of children’s literature in South Africa, with a special
interest in language and power, as well as post- and neocolonial hybridity.
The book explores the forces that affect the use of translation in producing
children’s literature in various languages in South Africa, and shows how some
of these forces precipitate in the selection, production and reception of
translated children’s books in Afrikaans and English. It breaks new ground in
its interrogation of aspects of translation theory within the multilingual and
postcolonial context of South Africa, as well as in its innovative
experimental investigation of the reception of domesticating and foreignising
strategies in translated picture books.
