This translation workshop invites participants to engage in an intensive process of critiquing and revising their English translation of an assigned Japanese-language scholarly article. The goal is to aide participants in developing advanced skills particular to translating scholarly work. This is achieved through the process of producing a translated academic article from first draft to final publication. Work takes place under the guidance of members of the 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 and the United States.
