In Summer of 2007, CWL offered a four-week summer session graduate workshop for students in social science disciplines with a reading knowledge of any foreign language.
- The primary goal was to teach students to render scholarly texts into English fort research purposes.
- A secondary goal was to advance the students’ knowledge of their research languages.
Students did extensive reading of source-language texts in their chosen fields, based on bibliographies they themselves put together. They will take notes on the texts in English and discuss them with their tutors. The object of the sessions is for students to learn to make sense of texts whose every word they do not know and to increase their vocabulary. At tutorial sessions students may also seek assistance with their translation projects.
