Working with the concept of censorship in Translation Studies is working with a (political) term that does not bring order to our field of study. Translation inseparable from various constraints offers the theoretical possibility of being equated with censorship. How can translation, as a process and a product that essentially functions as a complex network of exclusions and inclusions, be studied distinctively in relation to censorship – i. e. in relation to a similar complex network? What is the added value of ascribing different names to these two complex networks of exclusion and inclusion? Beyond external regulations and text-bound clues, agony and irritation are to be sought. These combined with a state of forlornness make the violence of censorship differentiable as such.

Beginning with The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour from the sixties, the author analyzes the split between the comic team and CBS over remarks they made on the Vietnam War and religion. He also examines The Richard Pryor Show of the seventies, which raised strong questions about network meddling over racial issues. Among recent personalities he discusses activist Michael Moore, whose frank political views wreaked havoc for NBC and Fox in the mid-nineties, and Bill Maher whose candid thoughts on 9/11 led ABC to terminate Politically Incorrect.

A drunken Irish maid slips and falls. A greedy Jewish pawnbroker lures his female employee into prostitution. An African American man leers at a white woman. These and other, similar images appeared widely on stages and screens across America during the early twentieth century. In this provocative study, M. Alison Kibler uncovers, for the first time, powerful and concurrent campaigns by Irish, Jewish and African Americans against racial ridicule in popular culture at the turn of the twentieth century. Censoring Racial Ridicule explores how Irish, Jewish, and African American groups of the era resisted harmful representations in popular culture by lobbying behind the scenes, boycotting particular acts, and staging theater riots. Kibler demonstrates that these groups' tactics evolved and diverged over time, with some continuing to pursue street protest while others sought redress through new censorship laws. Exploring the relationship between free expression, democracy, and equality in America, Kibler shows that the Irish, Jewish, and African American campaigns against racial ridicule are at the roots of contemporary debates over hate speech.
