Translating Cultures

This interdisciplinary course offers you the rare opportunity to study how cultures translate across a wide range of fields. Critically combining the disciplines of translation and cultural studies, it breaks new ground both practically and theoretically in exploring a variety of different issues across the humanities and social sciences. It gives you the opportunity to shape the emerging field of translating cultures through independent in-depth research, and will appeal if you aspire to work at the cutting edge of debates and practices dealing with cultural interaction and transformation in the contemporary world. Modules are taught and supervision given by expert staff who are specialists in a number of languages and disciplines, giving you the chance to follow particular themes in areas that most interest you. Recent work by staff includes books and articles on issues in translation, literature, migration, gender, religion, visual culture and museum studies to name a few, in Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish and other cultures. You are encouraged to attend the departmental research seminars in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly the Translating Cultures series run by the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
