Access the first ever issue of Asia Pacific Translation and Intercultural Studies for FREE today. 

We are delighted to introduce the first issue of the journal. Featured articles include 'Under the shadow of three lingua francae: repositioning translation in East Asia' by Leo Tak-hung Chan, which argues that translation as a form of resistance to globalization can be studied in relation to the quest for a common language in East Asia.

Another article, 'Inside and outside the grand lineage: a study of early translations of Japanese nō plays' by Michael Watson  explores the background behind what are sometimes referred to as the “Pound/Fenollosa” translations of nō drama, but are better described as translations by Hirata Kiichi and Ernest Fenollosa, revised by Ezra Pound for publication between 1914 and 1916.
