Andrew Chesterman (2003a) “Between text and culture”.


              In A. Veisbergs (ed.), The Third Riga Symposium on Pragmatic Aspects of Translation. Proceedings. Riga: University of Latvia / Aarhus School of Business, 27-47.






This paper offers a conceptual analysis of part of the area of Translation Studies that falls between text and culture. It mentions various research models and approaches, some of which have been developed and applied in much more detail than others. I shall also indicate some gaps where new knowledge would be useful, and make some suggestions concerning potentially useful concepts, frameworks and research questions. In broad terms, the area we shall be looking at could be called the sociology of translation.
