[Words from Abroad. History of Concepts as Translation History]
Loanwords hold a high epistemic status since they draw attention to the language, culture, and historicity of knowledge. The volume aims at bringing together aspects from the conceptual and translation history of the circulation of concepts between languages. 52 case studies deal with words that have migrated to other languages and established themselves there for various reasons.
