A network of scholars working on translation, ecology and environment
Climate change is the single most important issue facing humanity today and no area of human enquiry, including translation, has remained unaffected by its consequences. The last decade has witnessed a considerable growth of interest in the area of translation research broadly defined as ‘Eco-translation’. Scholars working in this area are to be found across the globe working in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from comparative literature and environmental history to computational science and philosophy.
The objectives of the Eco-translation Network are
- To bring together international researchers working on translation and the more-than-human world
- To promote further research in this area
- To build and highlight a resource base for teaching and scholarly activity in order to enhance the visibility of ongoing work
- To encourage outreach initiatives that foster awareness of eco-translation in mainstream debates on climate action
