Translation of Cultures

Petra Rüdiger (Editor), Konrad Gross (Editor)
Annotation. The contributors to this collection approach the subject of the translation of cultures from various angles. Translation refers to the rendering of texts from one language into another and the shift between languages under precolonial (retelling/transcreation), colonial (domestication), and postcolonial (multilingual trafficking) conditions
