Theory and Practice of Translation
In this course students learn the basic concepts and general conceptual framework for the analysis and understanding of translation as a process and a product. This course explores key principles, main schools of thought, and the fundamental controversies shaping translation theory. We will closely examine and contextualize multiple theoretical models, taking into account the pros and cons of each. This course provides a conceptual foundation on which the other translation courses will build, and on which you will be able to draw when describing, planning, assessing, and justifying your translation work.
