Course Description: This class offers an overview of some major concepts concerning translation as a social practice that has a significant impact on our daily lives and cultures. Students also have opportunities to increase awareness through practical exercises in translation. Translation is a process, practice, and product that is usually associated with language texts, but can, and often does, involve media change. The course studies some of the key issues in the study of translation, such as fidelity and freedom, that have provoked sustained debate, and others of current interest, such as retranslation and collaboration. Assessment: 70% is thoughtful participation: 35% is attendance but the other 35% is a demonstration of thoughtful engagement (e.g. comment sheets; animated discussion; quality of class assignments and their timely submission). The remaining 30% is the grade for a group translation project and individual reflection on that process.
