Course Content (Syllabus)
This course will introduce students to cultural and interdisciplinary approaches in Translation Theory. Students will become familiar with such diverse trends in translation studies as translation and gender, postcolonial translation theory, philosophical theories of translation among others. This interdisciplinarity breaks down barriers and reflects the fluidity of imposed boundaries that always prove arbitrary and confining, while it promotes new links between different types of knowledge and technologies. In an increasingly globalised environment, this interaction between disciplines in translation studies shows that this field can bring together approaches from a wide range of language and cultural studies, modifying them for its own use and developing new models specific to its own requirements.
