New Comparative Masters Course launched at Oxford

Oxford University’s new Masters in Comparative Literature and Critical Translation 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.

The MSt is attached to Oxford’s research centre in Comparative Criticism and Translation (OCCT) and 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.

The core course will introduce students to key topics in comparative and world literature and translation studies, and give them the skills needed to develop their own arguments and pursue original research.
