Literature in Translation: Trend or Necessity?
Karsen, Sonja
This paper concerns the practice of adopting literature in translation courses and civilization courses taught in English as a way of increasing foreign language enrollments at the undergraduate level. The need for cooperation between English and foreign language departments in coordinating courses is stressed, and several course titles are suggested. The types of courses in translation suggested by the 1973 ADE/ADFL Joint Summer Seminar are also listed. A course entitled "Literature and Revolution," offered at Skidmore College for the first time during the academic year 1974-75, is described in detail. The paper concludes with a discussion of the place of literature in translation courses in foreign language majors. (PMP)
