Through case studies of the first efforts to translate Western science fiction into Chinese at the beginning of the 20th century and the English translation of Liu Cixin’s novel, THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM, at the beginning of the 21st century, Ken Liu raises provocative questions that are too often ignored in the model of translation as cultural exchange and challenges us all to reevaluate translation as a site of resistance.
