The issues of the responsibility, agency, and power of translators and related concepts of ideology and culture have been at the center of translation studies in recent years. Much has been said on the social contexts where translators live and work, the consequences of their translational choices, and linguistic features of their translations. While acknowledging the importance of these factors, this panel seeks papers focusing on individual subjectivities and self-reflexivity of translators of ideologically charged texts. The questions we wish to address include but are not limited to how translators have defined their agency in various political contexts and what it means to confer responsibility on the translator.
