Course Description: This course will introduce you to the craft of literary translation as well as the theoretical foundations of translation studies. In class, we will complete various translation exercises that will encourage you to reflect on the translation process. Additionally, we will discuss a wide range of theoretical texts that will shape your approach to translation. At the beginning of the semester, you will select a source text (ST) to translate into English, for which you will write a proposal. Throughout the semester, your translation work will be carefully reviewed by fellow students in both small groups and as a class.
