Delve into the art of what is ‘lost’ and ‘found’ in translation by examining the role of translators as artists and mediators in preserving the essence of literary works as they cross language and cultural boundaries.
This is an introductory class covering the realities, challenges and theory surrounding the translation of literary texts.
Through guided analysis and discussion of well-known literary works in different languages, you will learn about differences in meaning, impact, and even dissemination of texts that depend on translation. You will leave this class with a richer understanding of the nuances of translation and how sociocultural context affects the reading experience.
