|TIAG 8640 - Overview of Trans&Intrp Stdies|
This is an introduction to research on translation; it is not a course in translation theory.|
The course aims to address students’ questions about translation, interpreting, and localization. In previous years we asked students what they wanted to know about these activities, and 181 questions were received. So the course tries to show how research might be able to answer the questions that are not dealt with in other courses. It does so by referring to the body of knowledge that has been accumulated in some 40 years of studies. The relevance of the research findings will be tested on a series of practical translation problems – in fact, by doing quick research in class. Most classes will require the reading of papers and will include in-class activities and discussions. Evaluation is graded and will be based on attendance, participation, and the completion of weekly worksheets.
