REICIT, Recerca en Estudis Interculturals i Traducció

The researchers in the REICIT group (Research in Intercultural and Translation Studies) decided to come together because we realised that our individual research involved a common interdisciplinary methodology that went beyond the basic working tools of Translation Studies, and also because the objects of our studies were framed by cultural and intercultural studies.
In our research we aim to analyse how culture is used and transformed. We understand the people who make up different cultures (or are their manifestation) as being the same as the producers of social, political, historical and geographical values. We aim to distinguish between the elements that make up popular culture and subcultures from the dominant culture.
We share the view of Raimon Panikar that “intercultural studies does not mean studying other cultures but allowing other cultures to impregnate our own study of the problem which will experience change as a result.”
We use a broad methodology which stems from works on ideology, identity and paratexts.
We hope that you will find out more about our work and share your own research and experiences with us.

12 p, 766.5 KB Food as an example of translation dinamism / Molina, Lucía (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Santamaria, Laura (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
The objective of this presentation is to prove that when translating food items the top priority is to convey the sociolinguistic values attached to them rather than their mere description. Although this premise can be extended to all cultural referents, it is more obvious when related to food since food has a social dimension and is fully versatile: food can define the identity of the characters related to it as it can specify age, genre, religion, wealth, quality or familiarity.

Many popular English-language films display some other language(s) to a greater or lesser degree. They constitute instances of the kind of language variation we refer to as 'third language' or L3. In other words, the third language is neither the main language used in the source text, nor the main language used in the target text, but a secondary language existing in the source text, which is also embodied in the process of translating.
