Translation is published by the Translation Studies Research Focus Group of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center at the University Of California, Santa Barbara. Translation has sprung from the dialogue initiated during UCSB’s Spring 2004 symposium, “Literary Translation: Revisiting the Text in the Humanities.” On 29 April 2004, faculty and students from UCSB and other collaborating universities came together from across a variety of disciplines to address what has become an ongoing and dynamic inquiry into the interstices between the creative and scholarly activity of translation. The success of the symposium soon led to the formation of a Translation Studies Research Focus Group, comprised of faculty and graduate students who convene regularly to further examine the complex issues of translation.
Translation is dedicated to the publication of original translations and scholarly work exemplifying the complex task of translation.
