Building on the internationally recognised expertise of both Essex’s Departments of Language and Linguistics, and Essex’s Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies, this MA Audiovisual and Literary Translation course will allow students to further specialise in literature and general translation. In the second term students will also learn techniques of professional literary translation. Students will develop their own personal translation skills, allowing students to translate a literary work accurately and creatively from one language to another for their dissertation. This course is offered with the combination of English and one of Arabic, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Students can be a native or near-native speaker of any of these languages, as they learn to translate to and from both languages. Students will work with native speakers in developing their ability to move accurately and quickly between their chosen language and English. This course offers practical modules such as: Principles of Translation; US and Caribbean literatures in dialogue; Translation Portfolios; Technologies of Translation.
