TRAN4036 Translation, Publishing and Global Circulation (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course provides an introduction to understanding the global circulation of translated literature and the dynamics of the publishing industry from a historical, theoretical and practical point of view. We will discuss current theoretical issues regarding the study of the circulation of translations from an interdisciplinary perspective (i.e. Translation Studies, Comparative Literature and Sociology), as well as examining the publishing process of a translation. Special attention will be paid to the development of new publishing initiatives and the possibilities offered by digital publishing. Students will be required to work collaboratively in small groups to produce a literary translation that they will publish in a blog.
