Translating Theory and Practice: Caine Prize for African Writing

This co-teaching module seeks to open critical conversations among students of literary translation and of comparative studies. Organised by Stephanie Kreiner (literary translation) and Sonja Frenzel (comparative studies), it seeks to bring together current perspectives on practices of interlingual and intercultural translation with contemporary theories of translation as a cultural technique of literary comparison. To this end, the course will revolve around a joint translational project of African short stories and will result in the publication of a bilingual anthology of short stories. The project is organised in cooperation with Allerweltshaus Köln e.V. and is funded through Lehrförderungsfonds der HHU and Kunststiftung NRW. Students of translational studies, please register here. Students of comparative studies, please register here.
