In Translation as Creative Critical Practice, Delphine Grass questions the separation between practice and theory in translation studies through her analysis of creative-critical translation experiments. Focusing on contemporary literary and artistic engagements with translation such as the autotheoretical translation memoir, performative translations and ‘transtopian’ literary and visual art works, the book argues for a renewed engagement with translation theory from the point of view of translation as artistic and practice-based research capable of reframing translation theory. Exploring examples of translation as both a “norm-breaking” and world-making activity, the book prompts us to reconsider the current place of translation practice in translation studies.
