About the Author

Fruela Fernández is Assistant Professor in English Studies at Universitat de les Illes Balears (Spain). He is the author of Espacios de dominación, espacios de resistencia (2014) and co-editor of The Routledge Handbook of Translation and Politics (2018, with Jonathan Evans).


In his timely book, Fruela Fernández uncovers how Spanish citizens in the Spanish 15M movement and its aftermath used translation’s conceptual and political potential in order to question official narratives of the global ‘crisis’. Fernández delivers a compelling empirical contribution to translation and social movement studies—a must read for researchers and activists alike.Nicole Doerr, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
