MLCS 400 B1 The History of Translation
T R 12:30 PM - 1:50 PM
Instructor: Waclaw Osadnik

The main objective of this course is to familiarize students with the history of translation and theoretical issues associated with it. In all aspects of the course, emphasis will be placed on contributions made by translators to the intellectual and cultural history of literature and other arts. The roles of the translator, and of translation, will be analyzed diachronically in order to gain some understanding of how translation has been practiced, perceived and applied over the centuries.
Students will participate in group discussions, so it is imperative that they come to class prepared to discuss assigned readings and weekly assignments. Students' programmes and interests may determine source language for assignments and presentations.
