Gender, sex and translation; the manipulation of identities.


Gender, sex and translation; the manipulation of identities.

Ed. by Jose Santaemilia.

St. Jerome Publishing


205 pages




This volume explores the ways in which gendered or sexual identities are manipulated through the process of translation. Twelve contributions from international scholars consider topics such as translation as a feminist practice; the construction of gender in English and German versions of James Bond movies; and gender issues in translated conversations between medical personnel and hospital patients. The papers were originally presented at a seminar held in October 2002 at the U. of Valencia. Distributed in the U.S. by InTrans Book Service.
