This article discusses the notion of 'Otherness' in contemporary Translation Studies. Here the term refers to a translator's confrontation with unfamiliar concepts, forms, and language as Well as to the dilemma of rendering them in a different cultural context. Based on brief historical summaries of early, significant debates, stick as the 19th century British debate on translating Homer, contemporary theories raising questions about ethics, gender, nation, and identity are explored. The article concludes that stick theories try to do away with traditional binary and hierarchical thinking by establishing translation as a new, radical space of intercultural negotiation, ultimately forming a metaphor for contemporary world transactions.
