The University of Oxford has launched a new Masters degree attached to the Comparative Criticism and Translation research centre (OCCT) which is based in St Anne’s.
The MSt in Comparative Literature and Critical Translation, led by St Anne’s fellow Professor Matthew Reynolds, is a nine-month, interdisciplinary course designed to give students critical, theoretical and research expertise in the intersecting fields of comparative and world literature and translation studies. It builds on the recent growth in scholarly awareness of the importance of translation to comparative and world literary study. This is what is meant by ‘critical translation’: not translator training, but rather an interest in the role played by translation and re-writing in literary history, and an alertness to the uses of translation in critical practice.
