This collection of eight essays examines specific cases of contacts between Pacific Rim and western European cultures to explore the phenomena of appropriations, intersections, transculturations, and discrete identities. The exchanges in ideas, religion, and culture resulting from contacts among these areas, whether through actual or virtual travel, indicate mutual affinities and occasionally interdependencies, but also separate and independent identities. Each of these essays concerns the portability, mutability, and adaptability of aspects of the exchange of ideas, and, in nearly all cases here examined, an affirmation of identity on the part of each culture in the exchange. The cases of intersections examined here generally indicate developments of cultures approaching one another and then retrenching.

How we view the foreign, presented either in the interrelated forms of culture, language, or text, determines to a large degree the way in which we translate. This volume of essays examines the cultural politics of translation that have determined the production and dissemination of "the foreign" in domestic cultures as varied as contemporary North America, Europe, and Israel. The essays address from a variety of theoretical perspectives the question posed almost two hundred years ago by the German philosopher Friedrich Schleiermacher of whether the translator should foreignize the domestic or domesticate the foreign.

Technology continues to transform the world with a process that seems to be constantly accelerating. The struggle to understand the way the "new" computer and communications technologies are transforming the world is many-sided. What the essays collected in this issue of the 'Bucknell Review' attempt is a general cultural approach to the notion of ther being a technological "matrix" in which we all now find ourselves "adrift" and of which our experience is often "dread." "Adrift" and "dread" are not single metaphors in the collection. In order to attempt this interrogation of the technological matrix, the essayists have drawn from a variety of disciplines- literature, philosophy, religion, art, media studies- while retaining the substantial contibutions of previous theorists of technology. The main thrust of this collection is to underscore the vast enrichment given to a study of the "new" technologies when approached from a broad cultural standpoint.
