Renditions nos. 81 & 82 (2014) Special Issue on Traditional Chinese Fiction Commentary
Renditions nos. 81 & 82 will appear in November 2014 as a double issue guest-edited by Stephen H. West and Xiaoqiao Ling, devoted to Chinese fiction from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Traditional commentaries are included and presented in a format as close to the Chinese original text as possible. These commentaries contain unique critical insights into the works they treat, and enable new ways of reading premodern Chinese fiction. During much of the last century editors were reluctant to include commentaries in modern editions, but in recent years this work has become much more widely available, with only English translations lagging behind. This special edition of Renditions is meant to move toward closing that gap.
Translation and Global Asia: Relocating Cultural Production Network, edited by Uganda Sze-Pui Kwan and Lawrence Wang-chi Wong
The present volume originates from the The Fourth Asian Translation Traditions Conference held in Hong Kong from 15 to 17 December 2010. The conference was jointly organised by the Research Centre for Translation, CUHK and the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, Nanyang Technological University. Its aim was to explore the richness and diversity of non-Western discourses and translation practices with specific attention to translational exchanges between non-Western languages, and the changes and continuities in Asian translation traditions. Translation and Global Asia covers a broad array of topics, from 7th-century Buddhist translation in Tibet to 21st-century political translation in Malaysia. The papers reflect a rich variety of historical and geographical interests, and are arranged in four sections, each with a common theoretical and thematic concern. As indicated in the title of the volume, broad conceptual frameworks such as 'cultural production networks' and 'global Asia' are used to link these interdisciplinary papers.
