ECTD63H3: Cultural Translation and Interpretation

This course will introduce students to the processes of negotiation and adaptation associated with the translation and interpretation of languages behind the cultural phenomena of everyday life. Students will explore examples from across cultural domains (film, TV, and literature) and develop understanding the concept of “cultural translation” as a gesture of interpretation of the objects of human expression that suffuse the practice of everyday life in the social sphere. Students will also have ample experience in audience-focused English and Chinese translation.
