The notion of paratext is an unquestionably important consideration for many lines of research in translation studies: the history of translation, literary translation, audiovisual translation, and the analysis of ideological discourse in translation or self-translation.

Many of the ideas presented in this book date back to this conference, which served as a forum and platform for debate for all those researchers interested in the links between paratextuality and translation in their various forms and aspects
