2015 – A year for translating research


Translation is far from becoming a crowded field of enquiry, but it is certainly an area that is attracting increasing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary attention. Here is an example, useful perhaps for drawing some intellectual stimulation and encouragement while working on drafts and revisions of our own research. It is the most recent special issue of the journal History of European Ideas which is wholly dedicated to the topic of Translation, reception and Enlightened Reform based on single case – that of the French thinker François Véron Duverger de Forbonnais in eighteenth-century political economy. Below is a link to the journal’s webpage and a copy of the Table of Contents. Enjoy!
