Email Questions

Congratulations to the 2020 Recipient!

Laura Gonzales, Sites of Translation: What Multilinguals Can Teach Us About Digital Writing and Rhetoric, University of Michigan Press, 2018

There is a lot to be learned through Gonzales’s digital-oriented mixed-methods in understanding moments of translation. The methods are impeccable and outstanding. The research examines meaning-making practices in the process of oral and written translation across named languages, and is explicitly concerned with the rhetorical strategies of multilinguals through the author’s investment in studying translation practices across contexts. The deep dive into methodology was compelling and is so helpful for researchers and teachers. The topic is important and exigent, and contributes a framework and methodological approach that can be applied in academic spaces, but importantly, also beyond the walls of the academy.
