To develop skills of reading and discussing scholarly articles in English and of presenting one’s ideas orally in English. To learn about translation studies.
Being able to read and discuss scholarly articles in English.
In this course, participants will read essays about translation and learn how to discuss translation. Every week the participants will be assigned an article about translation, and one of them will be selected as the designated commentator for the week. He or she will write a comment paper about the assigned article and post it to the class mailing list one day before the meeting of the class. The other participants will come to the classroom, having read the assigned text and the comment paper. In the class the designated commentator will introduce the author of the article, give a summary of the article and by presenting his/her comment orally, start a discussion about the article.
The articles to be discussed will be announced in the first meeting of the class. They will be mainly those collected in Lawrence Venuti, ed., The Translation Studies Reader, 2nd edition, and Mona Baker, ed, Translation Studies.
This class will be conducted in English. But if there is no G30 or NUPACE student in the participants, Japanese may be also used.
