Translation Workshop for Social Sciences Offered in Summer 2007
Scholar and translator Michael Heim will teach principles of translation to graduate students in the social sciences.
In the summer of 2007, UCLA will hold a four-week workshop in the translation of social science texts into English from any foreign language. This is the first such course to be offered in this country.
Set to run from June 25 to July 20, the Social Science Translation Workshop has two goals: to teach students to render scholarly texts from languages they use in research into English, and to advance students’ knowledge of their research languages. Participants will work independently and in class on a translation project (an article or book chapter) of their choosing. They will also receive private tutoring in the language from which they are translating.
The workshop will be taught by Michael Heim, a UCLA faculty member who is also a noted translator, and funded by an American Council of Learned Societies grant. Students presenting Southeast European languages are eligible to apply for an ACLS Language Grant to Individuals for Summer Study); other students may apply to the Summer School for support.
