Description - Gender in Translation by Sherry Simon

What has feminism got to do with the theory and practice of translation? Gender in Translation is an unprecedented study of panoramic feminist issues surrounding translation studies. Sherry Simon sites the decisive impact of feminism on translation theory and argues that feminist theorists have drawn attention to the ways in which translators contribute to cultural debates as a means of literary activism. This comprehensive, lively and accessible text includes: the history of feminist theories of language and translation studies women translators through history, from the Renaissance to the twentieth-century feminist translations of the Bible analysis of feminist texts such as De Beauvoir's The Second Sex and their translation into English. Sherry Simon teaches French at Concordia University, Canada and is the author of Le Trafic des langues: Traduction et culture dans la litterature Quebecoise , and editor of Culture in Transit: Translation and the Changing Identities of Quebec Literature .
