JAPN 4800 - Lost and Found in Translation

This course is an advanced language seminar in which students will read, analyze, and translate works by leading contemporary Japanese fiction writers. By comparing translations with those of others (including professionals), students will also learn to appreciate not only the inevitability of losing something in translation, but also the pleasure of unearthing something unintended even by the author. Prerequisite: JAPN 3020 or equivalent background.

Credits: 3
