There are a number of studies in English talking about various aspects of this so-
called gay boom in television, film and novels and on the Internet, and perhaps
the most dramatic but least studied aspect of this increasing of queer is in the
field of translation (Buckley 2000; McLelland 2000, 2005; Miller 2000). In the late
1980s and early 1990s, there was a small flood of Japanese translations of
Western literature that touched upon various forms of nonheteronormative

Consequently, while translating 'maric6n' as 'homosexual' would accurately
render the literal meaning of the ST, it would fail to render the denigrating attitude
connoted by 'maricon' (better translated as 'queer' or 'pansy'). We shall call such
overtones connotative meanings - that is, associations which, over and above the
literal meaning of an expression, form part of its overall meaning. In fact, of
course, connotative meanings are many and varied, and it is common for a single
piece of ...

The term tongzhi has replaced tongxinglian or tongxing'ai in most post-1990
publications in the Chinese language, except in China for the reasons of
ambiguity and confusion delineated above.“ The term's popularity can be
attributed to “its positive cultural references, gender neutrality, desexualization of
the stigma of homosexuality, politics beyond the homo-hetero duality, and use as
an indigenous cultural identity for integrating the sexual into the social.”12 Two:

One of the biggest differences between these names lies in the different ways of
translating the word “queer” from English to Chinese, and the queer subjectivities
these terms denote. As J.L. Austin reminds us, words are not simply constative,
but also performative—they make things happen and create social realities.15
For Barlow, funü, nüxing, and nüren denote different female subjects created by
certain discourses and configurations of power. I argue that the words tongzhi (
literally ...

Queer. Translating. Angelia. R. Wilson. In the summer of 1992 I attended a gay
and lesbian conference at the University of London. As one of the first of such
conferences in Britain, the high level of attendance reflected the diverse interests
in gay and lesbian studies emerging in this country. However, many of the
sessions focused on literary criticism. While perhaps this should have been
unsurprising given the vast contribution literary criticism has made in gay and
lesbian studies, ...

Paradoxically, I believe this makes it all the more pertinent and imperative to
emphasise Taiwan's state of postcoloniality from the perspective of the
aborigines, rather than conflating postcoloniality with decolonisation and the
establishment of an independent nation-state, the latter two of which tend to
obscure the role, if not continue to inflict a violence by eradicating the voice, of
the aborigines. Given Taiwan's messy historicity and translated condition, to
analyse queer theory's travel to ...

When introducing Queer Linguistics in non-anglophone cultures, one
automatically faces a terminological problem, namely that of translating the term
queer (Kraß 2009; Rauchut 2008). The word has originated as an abusive term
for designating non-heterosexual people from a heteronormative perspective. In
German, for example, attempts to translate the term by taking recourse to its
etymology1 have induced some scholars to use the German lexeme quer ('
transverse, across') as ...
