Title: Constructing a Sociology of Translation
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BTL%2074
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 74
Description:

The view of translation as a socially regulated activity has opened up a
broad field of research in the last few years. This volume deals with
central questions of the new domain and aims to contribute to the
conceptualisation of a general sociology of translation. Interdisciplinary
in approach, it discusses the role of major representatives of sociology
like Pierre Bourdieu, Bruno Latour, Bernard Lahire, Anthony Giddens or
Niklas Luhmann in establishing a theoretical framework for a sociology of
translation. Drawing on methodologies from sociology and integrating them
into translation studies, the book questions some of the established
categories in this discipline and calls for a redefinition of long-assumed
principles. The contributions show the social involvement of translation in
various fields and focus especially on the translator’s position in an
emerging sociology of translation, Bourdieu’s influence in conceptualising
this new sub-discipline, methodological questions and a sociologically
oriented meta-discussion of translation studies.
