Abstract

In the context of the rapid turnover of theory in geography, this paper treats theory as a commodity in relation to academic publishing and argues that translation is a constructive process by which new products circulate in international academic arenas. Results from a preliminary analysis of the translation of French writing are presented and some links between changing practice in the academic publishing industry and changes in intellectual agendas are hypothesised.
