The events of 11 September 2001 revealed that the nature of political violence has radically changed under globalization, while the launch of a 'war on terror' has generated important ethical and human rights issues. At the same time, the key but often invisible role played by translation and translators of all sorts in mediating conflict has become the object of new critical attention. This book focuses on the relationship between globalization, political violence and translation, developing new interdisciplinary perspectives and generating novel lines of debate for globalization research. Written by leading scholars in a wide range of disciplines (ranging from law, philosophy, politics and sociology to media studies and translation studies) the book provides key theoretical insights into the globalization of violence and the role of translation in this context, while also incorporating detailed empirical analyses of media representations and translators' accounts.
