Does translation only happen between different languages, or does it happen even within our own? How do we translate each other and ourselves? In this course we will approach all acts of reading as translation in its broadest possible sense, working under the assumption that language is a perpetually diversifying, dynamic medium that changes as it is being used over time and space by individual speakers and cultural groups. We will consider what is lost and what is found in translation, reading various kinds of texts from diverse geographical and temporal locations—from medieval England, Renaissance Italy, to modern Japan, France, or Poland. To discover many worlds within words, students will do creative assignments and translations, as well as write critical essays. No knowledge of foreign languages is required.
