New Course: Introduction to the Art of Literary Translation

books on a chair

Prof. Evan Fallenberg will be teaching a new writing course. In this workshop, students will be introduced to the practice of literary translation – which Goethe called "… one of the weightiest and worthiest undertakings in the general concerns of the world" – and experience how texts both define and transcend cultural borders. Each week we will discuss students’ translations of literary works from any language (the language of their choosing) into English, together with essays, stories and published translations, in order to examine the principal challenges that confront translators of literature.
