The course is taught on an interdepartmental basis under the aegis of the Centre for Intercultural Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
It aims to provide insight into the nature of translation, into historical and conceptual aspects of translation, and into contemporary linguistic, philosophical and literary approaches to translation.
The course consists of a number of case studies highlighting different facets of translation across the globe, discussions of key concepts and methodologies in contemporary translation studies, and readings of historical documents illustrating Western discourses about translation, from St Jerome to Jacques Derrida.
The assessment for this course is based on an essay (50%) and a take-home examination paper (50%).
