May 24 - Perspectives on Teaching Translation: Theory and Practice
Three teachers of translation in university environments will talk about their experience and approaches. The panelists will be Stephen Snyder, associate professor of Japanese and comparative literature at the University of Colorado, and a literary translator who has published translations of contemporary novelists; Charles De Wolf, professor at Keio University, linguist, translator, and writer; and Lynne Riggs, professional translator in the social sciences and humanities and part-time lecturer at International Christian University. Among topics they will cover are the challenges of teaching literary translation, working with students who are native or non-native speakers of the recipient language, and the low status of translation in academia today.
