SPN 510 Overview

This course addresses the key theoretical approaches that inform Translation and Interpretation (TandI) Studies. These include the basic theoretical principles of both interpretation and translation and the metalanguage around translation and interpreting studies. Students will learn to appreciate the diversity and interdisciplinarity of these related fields and how they have been practiced by studying their history and development. Developing a critical apparatus to question and speak professionally about interpretation and translation is a fundamental aspect of this course. Focus will be on the emergence and development of translation and interpretation studies as an academic discipline, and link them to the linguistic, cultural, social and other contextual factors. Prerequisite: A score of 600 or higher on the WebCAPE exam or departmental approval.
