Msc in Translation Studies

Course details

Within this masters programme, we have one option course titled, 'Translation and Creativity,' which focuses solely on literary translation. The course will address the intersection between translation, writing and creativity in literary translation, and views of translation as enhancement of one¿s own oeuvre and literary system. The course combines literary and translation theory and is designed to develop a critical understanding of how literary texts are constructed, circulated and consumed, and the different purposes they might serve in translation. It comprises lectures and seminars, where the second half of some sessions will be allocated to group work on texts (in English) and focused discussions.
