Bibliographic information


"Some translation scholars complain that translation studies isn't a 'true' discipline. This excellent volume proves otherwise. Only a mature, thoughtful, self-reflexive discipline could have produced something like this." - Douglas Robinson, Chair Professor of English and Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, China

"This interesting volume with its contributions by well-known scholars from China and abroad fills a gap in translation research. With its new focus on academic journals and translation, it is a welcome addition to the field of translation studies and its increasingly multidisciplinary and global nature." - Juliane House, Professor, Hellenic American University, USA

"Translation studies has exploded in the past decade, with dozens of new journals and conference activity both within the field and from interdisciplinary perspectives. In this new anthology, Yifeng Sun invites the top editors and scholars to give an overview of the variety of new journals in the field and the expanding range of topics covered, both East and West. The new book provides a valuable collection for all scholars in the field, particularly of interest to new students in translation and cultural studies, linguistic and literary studies, world literature, comparative literature, and English and Chinese studies." - Edwin Gentzler, Professor and Director of the Translation Center, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA
