Mistranslation and understanding constructs international relationships
“A stunning example of what we can learn about international relations and political change when we attend carefully to language and translation. The chapters on civilization, empire, citizenship, and democracy are gems. Wigen has put the study of ‘interlingual relations’ on the map.”
—Frederic Charles Schaffer, University of Massachusetts Amherst
“This book sets the agenda for studying what happens to key political concepts when they enter unfamiliar semantic terrain. International relations have always been among languages and not just states. Anybody interested in interlingual relations should read this book.”
—Jörg Friedrichs, University of Oxford
“State of Translation advances an innovative argument about the importance of translation across linguistic divides in international relations. This pioneering monograph will trigger other studies exploring politics across other linguistic divides.”
—Bahar Rumelili, Koç University
