This course explores the idea that translation, in an extended sense, is all around us. When we encounter differences – in the form of experiences, ideas, narratives, religious traditions, texts, languages, etc. – we come to understand these differences through acts of translation: that is, we make creative interpretive decisions as we restate, rephrase, and recast what we don’t know in terms of what we do know. In this course, we ask: how does translation in this extended sense participate in eliding, highlighting, obscuring, celebrating, distorting, and transforming difference?
