This lecture will introduce students to creative translation, going beyond the concept of faithfulness and authority of the original, to move towards a perception of variation and fluidity as central to the formation and transformation of all writing. The students will be encouraged to translate texts during the class by enacting a conscious practice of “creative treason” of the text, to bring the text elsewhere and allow it to live a new life.
