This advanced level course will develop the student's cultural literacy through translating Japanese texts into English. The class will discuss the content and linguistic form of authentic examples of Japanese texts including essays and works of fiction. The students will then practice producing readable English translations that not only convey the original Japanese accurately but show awareness of cultural registers and contexts. This course is open to both non-native and native speakers of Japanese. This course may be completed twice for credit.
