The Chinese theory of Eco-translatology sees translational activities as part of a network of interdependencies that can be investigated in ecosystemic terms.

Abstract

The Chinese theory of Eco-translatology sees translational activities as part of a network of interdependencies that can be investigated in ecosystemic terms. While appropriating the Darwinian principles of ‘adaptation’ and ‘selection,’ it also claims to be an indigenous theory with a universal calling, inspired by both traditional wisdom and contemporary ecology. This paper seeks to test the legitimacy of such claims, suggesting that the theoretical and ethical tenets of Eco-translatology actually resonate with the domestic and foreign cultural policies of the People’s Republic of China, and that this school of TS is ultimately instrumental in supporting an ideological agenda.
