    Description

    Round 4 Teaching Development Grant

    The project is designed to raise students's awareness of, and equip them to think critically about, issuses involved in the use of translations for studying the literature (and history) of another culture, specifically the culture of ancient Greece and Rome.

    The project is designed to raise students's awareness of, and equip them to think critically about, issuses involved in the use of translations for studying the literature (and history) of another culture, specifically the culture of ancient Greece and Rome; and the practice of translation across different periods and cultural contexts, and how this relates to the history of and issues involved in the reception of the classical heritage in western culture. This will be achieved by creating resources which enable students to engage critically with aspects of the process of translation, and which enable students across a wide spectrum of acquaintance with the classical languages to apply elementary (or more advanced as appropriate) knowledge of Latin and Greek to the relationship between original literary texts and later translations and adaptations.
