Editorial Reviews


“An astute, timely, and ground-breaking contribution that brings Latino/a studies and translation studies together for the first time. Sánchez, distinguishing between inter-national and intra-national translation practices, analyzes Latino/a literature in the U.S. written in English and translated almost simultaneously into Spanish, brilliantly locating the problems (misreadings, untranslatability) that arise when translation occurs within the same nation-state. Moving beyond ‘translation as betrayal,’ this book proposes inventive ways of approaching bi/multilingual texts and imaginaries in an increasingly connected world.”
—Norma Klahn, University of California, Santa Cruz

“Sánchez’s A Translational Turnis the first monograph to explicitly put contemporary Latinx literature in conversation with translation studies. . . . It is a pathbreaking book, laying the groundwork for further inquiry into complex aspects of international and transnational translations of Latinx literatures.” —Latino Studies

“Sánchez’s A Translational Turn is the first monograph to explicitly put contemporary Latinx literature in conversation with translation studies.” —Latino Studies
