Why translate? Who translates? What is the task of the translator? Is translation possible? This course is an introduction to different histories and theories of translation, and gives students an opportunity to build on their skills in a foreign language by exploring the process of translating literary texts into English, with the help of a selection of critical texts on the theory of translation. Students will compare various translations of “world literature” and integrate broad theoretical concepts about translation into a series of creative translation exercises and short critical essays that emphasize the process of reading and re-writing texts.
