Translating Korean: Fiction, Poetry, Film and K-Pop

EAST 1950W S01 [CRN: 15240]

This course explores the theory and practice of translation in the context of Korean cultural production. Each week we shall grapple with a particular issue in translation studies in dialogue with a Korean-language text. By the end of this course students should be able to locate the tools necessary to carry out translations from Korean to English, to demonstrate an understanding of translation as a craft with its own standards, responsibilities, and complexities, and to have completed a significant translation project themselves. Advanced learners of the Korean language as well as native speakers of Korean are welcome. DPLL
