Translation history, specializing in translation phenomena through history, has earned a niche in the hall of Klio, the mythical Muse of history. The knowledge system of translation history prepares for its research system as an inter-disciplinary subject. Then what is translation history? And what is its relationship with both history and translation studies? What paradigmatic shifts have occurred in translation history? And how is its future charted? In this seminar, the speaker will try to answer these questions so as to sketch a preliminary research into translation history.
