RUS 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Russian Translation Seminar

4 credits (Fall)
Designed to accommodate students normally planning to enroll in either Russian 313 or 389, this course offers an in-depth study of Russian in the context of translation. Students will work on a series of common texts drawn from Russian culture, with the goal of creating collaborative translations, and will also choose texts relevant to their own interests, and create individual translations. Of particular interest will be creative works or primary sources that students can use to support or further their research in other disciplines. Throughout the course, students will work to develop their skills in speaking, reading, writing, and aural comprehension. Special attention will be devoted to varying levels of proficiency and to gaps in Russian study caused by the pandemic.

Prerequisite: RUS 222 RUS 313 RUS 389  or the equivalent.
