TOPIC:  Translation as Craft

This course focuses on developing the studentís skills in
translating modern Japanese into fluent, polished English.  The
range of texts we will read and translate depends in part on student
interest, but will focus largely on short literary texts by
contemporary Japanese writers of fiction, memoir and essay.  All
readings in Japanese.  This course counts for credit as a Japanese
language course (4th year level or above).  Students will be
evaluated on the basis of daily participation in class, regular
written homework assignments, and three to four exams.
