About this book series

This series is the first to take a global and interdisciplinary view of translation and translators across time, place, and cultures. It also offers an untapped opportunity for interactions between translation and interpreting studies, comparative literature, art history, and print and book history.


Translation History aims to become an essential forum for scholars, graduate students, and general readers who are interested in or work on the history and practice of translation and its cultural agents (translators, interpreters, publishers, editors, artists, cultural institutions, governments).


Thus, the editors welcome proposals which address new approaches to the subject area in the following ways:


  • Work which historicise translation in all its forms and expressions: orality, textuality, ideology, language, sociology, and culture


  • Work offering conceptual frameworks to scholars working on communication and mediation in the history of religion, political theory, print, science, and culture.


All proposals and final manuscripts are peer-reviewed by experts in the field, either on the editorial board or beyond.


The series publishes book-length studies (80,000 words), as well as shorter publications (25,000 to 50,000 words) which will appear as Palgrave Pivot publications.
