Translation, Interpreting and Mediation

Translation, Interpreting and Mediation

“It’s TIME“: A note from the series editors, Jack McMartin and Sara Ramos Pinto
“In May 2024, we took the decision to update the series’ name from Translation, Interpreting and Transfer to Translation, Interpreting and Mediation (TIME). By replacing ‘transfer’ with ‘mediation’, we seek to more explicitly foreground the situatedness of translation, the interpretive and social agency of translators, and the media-specific constraints and affordances involved in conveying information in new forms. At the same time, we want to move away from the traditional notion of translation as the conveyance of invariant and stable meanings across languages and cultures, a notion often associated with ‘transfer’.”

Mission statement
Championing a broad and transversal approach to the study of translational phenomena, Translation, Interpreting and Mediation (TIME)  is a book series for monographs and edited volumes that explore translation as a pervasive social practice connecting spaces and collectivities through complex forms of resemiotization and mediation. The series transcends traditional notions of translation as the decoding and recoding of semantic invariants and embraces an expansive understanding of translational agency. It aims to provide a venue for theoretical and methodological innovations at the disciplinary frontiers where translation is pervasive and essential but seldom fully understood or acknowledged. The series welcomes different perspectives on translation, interpreting and mediation, interfacing with a variety of areas of study, including sociology, literature, linguistics, cognition, politics, law, history, communication, multimodality, ecology, technology, cultural production and digital humanities (among others). The series draws inspiration from the collective expertise of CETRA (Centre for Translation Studies), its institutional home at KU Leuven.

All volumes in the series are double peer reviewed.
