Understanding the importance of translators during the Meiji period
The Meiji is an era of Japanese history lasting from September 1868 to July 1912. This period covered the first half of the Empire of Japan, during which Japanese society moved from being an isolated feudal society to its modern and industrialised form. Translations played a vital role in shaping the Meiji state and society. In line with this, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) IMPACTRANS project will investigate the relationship between translators, their social status, and their approaches to producing indirect translations (translations of translations) in Japan during the Meiji period. Project work will shed light on the impact of translator notability during that time.
