Course Description: Japanese literature underwent major transformations during the Meiji era. A new literary language was created, new literary genres appeared, and the general understating of the purpose of literature changed. These transformations were in part due to a massive import of European literature; Japanese translations of European texts played an important role. In this course, we discuss the link between translation and creativity within the Japanese context. The course provides an overview of the literary world of Meiji Japan and its reception of foreign literature. The course also presents the main concepts of translation studies such as source/target language, domestication, the translator’s visibility, etc., and applies them to the Japanese context.
