Translation Studies

Jeremy Munday

Table of contents

An entry on ‘Translation Studies’ in a Handbook of Translation Studies runs the risk of being considered superfluous, superficial or an ill-advised bout of navel-gazing. After all, what is happening in Translation Studies will surely be covered in the other entries, ranging as they do from “Adaptation” to “Web and translation”. But the term Translation Studies is far from uncontroversial and this entry will attempt to reduce the risks by concentrating on its identity, history, development and ideas since the second half of the twentieth century. This may serve as a context for the understanding of areas that are dealt with in more detail elsewhere in the volume, and to highlight particular questions of debate.
