This translation workshop invites participants to engage in an intensive process of critiquing and revising their English translation of a Japanese-language book. The goal is to aide participants in developing advanced skills particular to translating scholarly work. This is achieved through the process of producing a translation from first draft to final publication under the guidance of members of Japanese Studies faculty from the social sciences and humanities. Amongst other activities, the workshop includes:
Roundtable discussions of general difficulties in translation.
Small group discussions based on topics ranging from broad disciplinary distinctions, to particular translations.
One-on-one sessions between students and faculty members.
Participants receive a modest bursary, accommodation, and round trip transport from the EU/UK, Japan, China, South Korea and the United States.
