Reinventing Ireland : culture, society, and the global economy( )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade the Irish economy has experienced a period of unprecedented growth which has earned it the title Celtic Tiger. This success has been interpreted by academic commentators as marking a social and cultural transformation, what some have called the reinvention of Ireland. The essays in this book challenge the largely positive interpretation of Ireland's changing social order." "The authors identify the ways in which culture and society have been made subservient to the needs of the market in this new neo-liberal Ireland. They draw on subversive strands in Irish history and offer a broader and more robust understanding of culture as a site of resistance to the dominant social order and as a political means to fashion an alternative future."--Jacket

Translating gender by Eleonora Federici( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Thematic Network Acume 2 «Interfacing Sciences, Literature and Humanities: an Interdisciplinary Approach» discussed translation theory and practice through an interdisciplinary approach at an international conference held at the University of Calabria in 2009. The contributors of this collection propose different voices on the theory and practice of translation as an act of communication across linguistic and cultural barriers where the translator’s role is central. The volume explores current theoretical perspectives on gender and translation, focuses on the debate on gender and language, investigates some examples of translatresses’ work and proposes practices of translation by women, analysing the complexities in translating «transgender» characters in fiction and the representation of gender roles in cinematographic adaptations of novels. Highlighting the «double difference» of the translatress, the collection offers a textual tapestry on translation that invites women/readers to question once again the act of translation
Translation and identity by Michael Cronin( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Identity is one of the most important political and cultural issues of our time. Translation and Identity looks at how translation has played a crucial role in shaping debates around identity, language and cultural survival in the past and in the present." "Drawing on a wide range of materials from official government reports to Shakespearean drama to Hollywood films, Translation and Identity demonstrates that translation is central to any proper understanding of the emergence of cultural identity in human history, and offers an innovative and positive vision of the way in which translation can be used to deal with one of the most salient issues in an increasingly borderless world."--Jacket

Translation in the digital age by Michael Cronin( Book )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translation is living through a period of revolutionary upheaval. The effects of digital technology and the internet on translation are continuous, widespread and profound. From automatic online translation services to the rise of crowdsourced translation and the proliferation of translation Apps for smartphones, the translation revolution is everywhere. The implications for human languages, cultures and society of this revolution are radical and far-reaching. In the Information Age that is the Translation Age, new ways of talking and thinking about translation which take full account of the dramatic changes in the digital sphere are urgently required. Michael Cronin examines the role of translation with regard to the debates around emerging digital technologies and analyses their social, cultural and political consequences, guiding readers through the beginnings of translation's engagement with technology, and through to the key issues that exist today

Translating Ireland : translation, languages, cultures by Michael Cronin( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translating Ireland explores centuries of translation activity during which the languages, cultures and literatures of Ireland have been affected by the work of Irish translators in Ireland and elsewhere. Translation in Ireland has functioned as a weapon of political propaganda, an agent of linguistic reform, and a catalyst for cultural renewal and yet the activity of translators during often controversial circumstances has remained unacknowledged. Translating Ireland examines what happens in the contact zone between languages and how translation affects both the development of language and literature and the construction of identity. In a country that has witnessed radical changes in language use over the centuries, translation has become an important element in political, linguistic and cultural self-knowledge

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eco-translation : translation and ecology in the Age of the Anthropocene by Michael Cronin( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Ecology has become a central question governing the survival and sustainability of human societies, cultures and languages. In this timely study, Michael Cronin investigates how the perspective of the Anthropocene, or the effect of humans on the global environment, has profound implications for the way translation is considered in the past, present and future. Starting with a deep history of translation and ranging from food ecology to inter-species translation and green translation technology, this thought-provoking book offers a challenging and ultimately hopeful perspective on how translation can play a vital role in the future survival of the planet. »--

The expanding world : towards a politics of microspection by Michael Cronin( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are we really living in a shrinking world? Is it true that diversity is on the decline everywhere? Are we condemned to live on a planet without difference or hope? The Expanding World challenges the basic notion of a shrinking world in current debates around globalization and argues that it informs ways of thinking and doing which are deeply damaging to the emergence of a progressive politics. The work proposes instead a new kind of politics based on a notion of an expanding rather than a shrinking world. This implies a different way of looking at the world and a different way of doing politics. The Expanding World is fundamentally about looking more closely at what is around us and acting on that knowledge. It is about considering what it means to have whole worlds reflected in the looking glass of local inquiry. Cronin challenges the prevailing culture of disenchantment by highlighting the inexhaustible variety and richness of the planet and how that variety and richness can become the basis of new forms of emancipatory politics

The maids by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Maids is a jewel: an astonishing complement to The Makioka Sisters, set in the same house, in the same turbulent decades, but among the servants as much as the masters. The Maids concerns all the young women who work -- before, during, and after WWII -- in the pampered, elegant household of the famous author Chikura Raikichi, his wife Sanko, and her younger sister. Though quite well-to-do, Raikichi has a small house: the family and the maids (usually a few, sharing a little room next to the kitchen) are on top of one another. This proximity helps to explain Raikichi's extremely close observation of the maids and their daily lives, although his interest carries with it more than a dash of the erotic, calling to mind Tanizaki's raciest books such as Diary of a Mad Old Man and The Key. In the sensualist, semi-innocent, sexist patrician Raikichi, Tanizaki offers a richly ironic self-portrait, but he presents as well a moving, nuanced chronicle of change and loss: centuries-old values and manners are vanishing, and here -- in the evanescent beauty of the small gestures and intricacies of private life -- we find a whole world to be mourned. And yet, there is such vivacity and such beauty of writing that Tanizaki creates an intensely compelling epic in a kitchen full of lively girls. Ethereally suggestive, sensational yet serious, witty but psychologically complex, The Maids is in many ways The Makioka Sisters revisited in a lighter, more comic mode"--
