Meets M 5:00 -7:30 pm
This class offers an opportunity to develop an extensive literary
translation project in a workshop setting. Throughout the course the
emphasis will be on a collaborative, exploratory approach to
literary translation, and one which is grounded in the practical
craft of translation, yet makes use of literary theory and
translation theory where these are useful and appropriate.
Classes will consist primarily of in-depth workshops focusing on
ongoing drafts of short extracts from your projects. Other
activities and materials will be used as and when they are needed.
Many students use this class as an opportunity to develop a project
for the Certificate in Literary Translation.
