Translating in Theory and Action: Contemporary Contexts in Translation

Cross-cultural communication is one of the challenges of our increasingly connected world, and diverse modes of translation play an important role in meeting this challenge. Given the prominent role of English in international communication, questions concerning the relation between translation and the global lingua franca are foregrounded. This special issue of ELOPE will examine the contemporary contexts of translation from and into English, and the concomitant theoretical and practical challenges. It will focus on fostering interdisciplinary dialogue between Translation Studies and the study of English by investigating the complexities of translation through diverse perspectives and research paradigms.

Vol 17 No 1 (2020): Atwood at 80
ELOPE 17 (1)

When Margaret Atwood celebrated her 80th birthday in November 2019, there was a feeling that the occasion called for a burst of applause – figuratively speaking. Around Europe, many Canadian scholars and Canadian Studies Associations responded with a range of activities. Slovenia contributed handsomely: first, with an event at the Univerzitetna knjižnica Maribor – Fourscore and More: Margaret Atwood at Eighty – and second, with this special issue dedicated to Atwood’s recent work.

The special issue of ELOPE (Vol. 17, No. 1, 2020) is guest edited by Michelle Gadpaille and Jason Blake.
