Feminist Translation Studies: Local and Transnational Perspectives reconfigures feminist translation as a substantial force and form of feminist acti vism both locally and transnationally. By simultaneously re/visiting the field’s established theories and analytical tools, exploring new methodological and theoretical territories and providing innovative insights and models for the study of the subject matter, the volume sets out to be a major reference book for Feminist Translation Studies. It aims to expand our understanding of feminist politics not only to include feminist translation as feminist activism against multiple intersecting regimes of domination, but also to rethink feminist translation through feminist theories and practices developed in different geohistorical and disciplinary contexts. In order to achieve such an expansion, the 25 scholars brought together in this collection reveal the multiple agendas and visions of feminist translation and the different political voices and cultural heritages through which it speaks across times and places. Thus, the volume seeks to increase the geopolitical, sociocultural and historical scope of the field from different disciplinary perspectives so that it becomes more transnational, interdisciplinary and overtly political.
