Themes and Version (FRE4807.01)

This writing practicum will focus on two forms of writing: creative themes and “version,” the French art of translation. In the first half of this course, we will work on developing a daily writing practice with frequent creative assignments that students will analyse with their peers and revise. We will conclude the term with a series of translation projects in a variety of genres. Throughout the course we will focus on style, lexical enrichment, and mastering verbal aspect.
