ITAL 27.02 Culture and/in Translation: Theory and Practice

Human communication depends on translation. Much of what we know about worlds different from our own comes through translations and the dialogues between languages and cultures that they create.  In this course we will focus on translation between Italian and American cultures, and consider the larger question of the representation of “foreignness.” We will explore the theory and practice of translation in various contexts—literature, film, popular media—and gain direct experience in the art of translation through workshops and a final project.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
