Fall 2016 - Graduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
The Art and Craft of Translation
Hybrid course, meets in person and online
In an innovative and engaging approach to the teaching of translation studies, the translation workshop in the fall of 2016 will be the first of its kind in the history of the School of Arts and Humanities (A&H). The original conceptual frame of A&H was to develop an interdisciplinary program. To respond to this mission, we will be offering a hybrid-online course that moves between the translation of verbal texts to the translation of visual, filmic, musical, and digital works. Several associative modules will be dedicated to the translation and interpretation of various literary and artistic works. Therefore, the seminar will also rely on the studentsâ€™ particular creative and academic backgrounds. The workshop will be an exciting forum to chart new landscapes and show how translation revitalizes the interpretation and interaction of works of art and literature.
Taking advantage of the best of both worlds, we will meet weekly as a seminar in Fall 2016 on Wednesdays from 7-8:15 pm and throughout the week in the digital space of eLearning.
