1. Wetering, Demi van de. A Descriptive Study of Retranslations of Children's Literature.

Degree: 2019, Leiden University

Children’s literature is often strictly bound to those of childhood. Therefore, children’s literature is considered to have an inferior status being when compared to other genres of literature. Because of this inferior status, several scholars believe that children’s literature finds itself in a peripheral position in the literary polysystem: a structure which assumes interdependent relations between various genres. However, since the introduction of the literary polysystem, scholars have suggested that there has been a shift as children’s literature has gained some academic and critical foothold. This diachronic case-study aimed to find out if the ‘implied’ improved status of children’s literature in the literary polysystem can be observed in the translation of children’s literature. By applying Gideon Toury’s three-phase methodology for systematic descriptive translation studies (DTS), I have isolated several translational phenomena, which allowed for discussion regarding the norms which governed the translation in the past and in the present and how these have shifted. Advisors/Committee Members: Jonk, Minke (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Descriptive Translation Studies; Gideon Toury; Polysystem Theory; Children's Literature; Retranslation; Alice in Wonderland
