In Translation: a Creative Practice course from The American University of Paris students will read deeply and study the pioneering craft of writers and translators to understand the molecular power of language through translation.

About

A translator transforms into a new self, speaking differently. Where do you fit in? As writers, translators, international business professionals, or anybody working ‘in-between’ places and cultures – what does it mean to transform, translate, transport ourselves?

In Translation: a Creative Practice course from The American University of Paris, we’ll look at translation strategies and the creative potential beyond the creation of translated text. Exercises will lead you into new drafts of original and translated work (literature, spoken word, video, speech) in this new 2-credit course.

This is a way to read beyond your usual reach, access new literatures, and to explore your own flexibility with language. This is a unique course for anybody who needs to imagine difference and work across borders as part of their professional lives. Second language not required.
