Translating East Asia

Martin Kern

Back to "Spring 2022" courses

Translation is at the core of our engagement with China, Japan, and Korea. From translations of the classics to contemporary literature, from the formation of modern East Asian cultural discourses to cross-cultural references in theater and film, the seminar poses fundamental questions to our encounters with East Asian cultural artifacts, reflecting on what “translation” of “original works” means in our globalized world. Open to students with or without knowledge of an East Asian language.
