Table of contents
Luise von Flotow's book is part of the series Translation Theories Explained, edited by Anthony Pym and designed to "respond to the profound plurality of contemporary translation studies". Her contribution is aimed at introducing the reader to the field of gender and translation which was, up to the late 1980s, a relatively neglected academic subject. No wonder then that most of the theoretical works on which this book is based and which are, as such, listed in the bibliography, were published in the 1990s.
