Identity, Language and Culture in Eva Hoffman's Lost in Translation
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities.

Abstract [en]

This essay looks at the relation between identity, language and culture. The essay defines the three concepts and comes to the conclusion that these concepts are so closely related that they can not be described without each other. The theories used to define these concepts are culture studies, ethnolinguistics, translation studies and culture translation studies. The relation between identity, language and culture is viewed thru Eva Hoffman’s novel Lost in Translation which is Hoffman’s own story of moving from Poland to Canada as a child and how this shaped her identity. The essay focus on the complex process of how people living “in-between” cultures develop their identity.
