Personal profile

Name in Chinese



Wenyan Luo received her PhD in 2019 from Durham University, UK. Her research interests lie in text analysis in translation, history of translation between English and Chinese, translation ethics, translator studies, and sociology of translation, in particular Actor-network Theory-approached translation studies. Her recent book Translation as Actor-Networking applies actor-network theory (ANT) to study the process of producing Arthur Waley's canonical English translation of the Chinese literary classic Journey to the West. The book investigates how various translation actors (agents) worked in very specific historical, social, translation, and publishing conditions, towards the production of the translation. It reveals what those actors put into the translation project, how they interacted towards its success, and how the actors, at the same time, were constantly changed, shaped, and transformed during translation.
