Translating East Asia

Martin Kern

Back to "Fall 2023" courses

Translation is at the core of our encounters with East Asia. From translations of the literary classics to contemporary novels and poetry, from the formation of modern East Asian cultural discourses to national identities to East-West travels of works in theater and film, the seminar poses fundamental questions to our encounters with East Asian cultural artifacts, reflecting on the classical principles of translation and problematizing what the “translation” of “original works” even means anymore in our globalized world. Open to students with or without knowledge of an East Asian language.
