In recent years there has been increasing interest in the connection between translation and politics, especially from a diachronic perspective. This turn towards the interface between translation and politics has been characterized by a significant widening of the field of research and a strong interdisciplinary approach. The essays this issue follow this generally interdisciplinary framework, and maintain a marked diachronic focus, with papers ranging from the early modern period until the early nineteenth century in Europe. The essays presented cover a wide variety of translation events, and share a view of translation as a particular form of political doing, as a particular means by which a political act can be carried out. They share, in other words, a perspective that highlights the performative aspect of translation, its 'doing something' in the world at a particular time and in a particular place. As such, the issue focuses on translation within a performative and pragmatic perspective on language deriving from the work of Austin (1962) and Searle (1969).

Abstract

In recent years there has been increasing interest in the connection between translation and politics, especially from a diachronic perspective. This turn towards the interface between translation and politics has been characterized by a significant widening of the field of research and a strong interdisciplinary approach. The essays this issue follow this generally interdisciplinary framework, and maintain a marked diachronic focus, with papers ranging from the early modern period until the early nineteenth century in Europe. The essays presented cover a wide variety of translation events, and share a view of translation as a particular form of political doing, as a particular means by which a political act can be carried out. They share, in other words, a perspective that highlights the performative aspect of translation, its 'doing something' in the world at a particular time and in a particular place. As such, the issue focuses on translation within a performative and pragmatic perspective on language deriving from the work of Austin (1962) and Searle (1969).
