Abstract:

In the wake of post-colonial and post-modernist thinking, ‘Eurocentrism’ has
been criticized in a number of academic disciplines, including Translation
Studies. First published as a special issue of Translation and Interpreting
Studies 6:2 (2011), this volume re-examines and problematizes some of the
arguments used in such criticism. It is argued here that one should be wary in
putting forward such arguments in order not to replace Eurocentrism by a
confrontational geographical model characterized precisely by a
continentalization of discourse, thereby merely reinstituting under another
guise. The work also questions the relevance of continent-based theories of
translation as such along with their underlying beliefs and convictions. But
since the volume prefers to keep the debate open, its concluding interview
article also provides the opportunity to those criticized to respond and
provide well-balanced comments on such points of criticism.
