      Call for papers for the volume Reflexive Translation Studies

      Editors: ┼×ebnem Bahadır & Dilek Dizdar

      Publisher: John Benjamins

      As in other fields of the humanities, the cartography of Translation Studies is also being challenged by work which is problem-based rather than discipline-based. Not only does problem-based scholarly practice disregard preconstructed borders but it equally paves the way for critical reflection on the very construction of these borders. Such a scholarly practice can be seen as part of what we call Reflexive Translation Studies. Reflexivity here implies a critical engagement with preconstructed notions both in individual research projects and in grand theoretical narratives. The 'preconstructed' can be questioned in all areas and stages of translation and interpreting research: when determining the object of research, when adopting or developing methods, when conducting empirical or theoretical work, and/or when interpreting the material. We are interested in instances of such reflexivity which could occasion epistemological ruptures and conversions of concepts, methods and borders.
