Translation and Geography investigates how translation has radically shaped the way the West has mapped the world.

Groundbreaking in its approach and relevant across a range of disciplines from translation studies and comparative literature to geography and history, this book makes a compelling case for a form of cultural translation that reframes the contributions of language-based translation analysis.

Focusing on the different yet intertwined translation processes involved in the development of the Western spatial imaginary, Federico Italiano examines a series of literary works and their translations across languages, media, and epochs, encompassing:

poems

travel narratives

nautical fictions

colonial discourse

exilic visions.

Drawing on case studies and readings ranging from the Latin of the Middle Ages to twentieth-century Latin American poetry, this is key reading for translation theory and comparative/world literature courses.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Let's orient translation studies! This is what this intriguing study allows us to do in offering a rich compendium of terms and concepts for navigating the cartographic imagination in translation studies. Essential reading for those working and teaching in geopolitics and the transdisciplinary humanities.' Emily Apter, New York University, USA
